"Running back is a position that you can't have too many of," new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said. "You can find creative ways to try to use them, and everyone will have a role if they earn that role."
"I've had a tremendous amount of respect for Bill and Coach Saban, they've been great mentors," Daboll said at Saturday's media day, his first visit with reporters since his hiring. "Obviously extremely smart, extremely successful. And I appreciate the way they do things. They make it easy to work for them. There's a standard, you know the standard. You've got to meet it every day. And if you don't, there's consequences. I think it's very fair, demanding, but I like the work environment from those guys."
