McCarron was cool with not talking to reporters

The meeting of AJ McCarron and the horde of reporters this morning wasn’t an every-day occurrence.

It was actually the fourth such assembly since the third-year sophomore quietly won the quarterback job over Phillip Sims.

Coach Nick Saban said his passer’s unavailability was his call, but McCarron said he wasn’t fighting the decision.

“Coach wanted me to go under the radar this year,” McCarron said. “… I don’t like to be around the camera light and all that a whole lot, but it was both of our decisions.”

McCarron, who was comfortable and insightful in front of the large media gathering, spoke after wins at Penn State, Florida, and Auburn before Wednesday. He’ll be available again Thursday during the full team’s hour-long media day in the Superdome.
