NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported Schottenheimer will meet with Nick Saban on Friday about Alabama's offensive coordinator opening, according to a league source. Schottenheimer has some competition, though, as a league source told NFL Network's Michael Lombardi that Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter also is interviewing for the job Wednesday and considered the favorite.
Saban is looking to fill the void left by Jim McElwain, who left his post as offensive coordinator at Alabama to become head coach of Colorado State.
Are Sanchez haters legit?
Namath -- who, with the help of his daughter, live tweets every Jets and many Alabama games -- has been critical of Schottenheimer at times, but he also has praised him. His Twitter page has gone silent since Alabama's victory, but it won't be long before we hear his thoughts on Schottenheimer and the latest criticism of Mark Sanchez.
After all, Namath always will be tied to his old team.
