Where are they now - Geoff Collins

Where is the world is Geoff Collins? First I'll tell you where he's not - Alabama. That's right - he's no longer on staff there............ next I'll tell you he's just taken a job for a guy he USED to work for................. third, I'll tell you it's not Giff Smith................ it's actually George O'Leary, and Collins has left the wonderful world of Saban. Why - well, he's finally going to get his shot as a position coach - LB Coach at UCF. Way to go Geoff!!! Way to escape the looney bin

Anyhow. great news for Geoff.

"Geoff is going to be a great addition to our staff, not only in terms of coaching, but also with his recruiting ability," O'Leary said. "It's great to have someone that I have worked with before and knows the type of system we are going to run. He is only going to enhance our program with his coaching experience and ability to recruit."

"Geoff did a fantastic job for us during his time at the University of Alabama," Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. "This is a great opportunity for him as well as a great hire for UCF. They are a getting a guy who knows college football, works hard each and every day, and does it with a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and positive energy."

Oh yeah, one last thing - Geoff, how about you stop poaching recruits from us................... Maybe you can turn your efforts towards Saban and take some of their guys this time.. ;-)
