Two seasons with the Dolphins, however, might have been enough. Maybe he’s convinced that he’s a college guy at heart.

“I didn’t feel like I could impact [the Dolphins] the same way that I can as a college coach in terms of affecting people’s lives personally,” he said Tuesday during a news conference. “There’s a lot of self gratification in all that.

“So I kind of learned through that experience that maybe this is where I belong, and I’m really happy and at peace with all that. No matter how many times I say that, y’all don’t believe it, so I don’t even know why I keep talking about it.”

It’s his fault that we’re skeptical. But no one would blame him for sticking around.

If he does, it’s a good bet that the Tide continue to roll.
