Video of Scott Cochran stripping fumbles from Tide RBs

To say Alabama strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran has a cult following is outdated. He’s gone mainstream.

The man with an unstoppable motor and incredible volume in his speaking voice had some fun with Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacy and company at Tuesday’s indoor practice. Take a look for yourself.

Kirby Smart gets another raise

Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart got another raise this afternoon. The UA Board of Trustees compensation committee approved a bump in pay from$750,000 annually to $850,000. Just a year ago, he was making $360,000.

His contract still calls for a $72,000 buyout if he takes any other job other than a head coaching position.

Strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran also got a raise from $225,000 to $290,000.

In other news, a certain group Alabama fans really don’t want Auburn to win the BCS National Championship Game. They have even made “Roll Ducks Roll” shirts in support of Oregon. See them here.

Assistant coaching moves plentiful today

It only took about five hours to drive back down to Alabama from Louisville. Apparently that’s enough time for one Alabama assistant coach to leave and another was reportedly hired.

Now former Crimson Tide defensive line coach Bo Davis is headed to Texas to take the exact same job.

Don’t freshen those resume’s just yet. Multiple reports indicate Clemson defensive line back Chris Rumph is headed to Tuscaloosa.

Nick Saban issued a statement wishing Davis well but made no announcement of a replacement hire.

In other assistant coaching news, the contracts are up for discussion on tomorrow’s compensation committee meeting of the UA Board of Trustees. That likely means raises for defensive coordinator Kirby Smart and strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran.

Read more in print tomorrow.
