The Saban staff is now complete, with Burton Burns (if that is his real name...) coming to Tuscaloosa.  Burns coached the running backs at Clemson and has been with TerryTommy Bowden's staff for nine years, signing on with Bowden at Tulane and following him to Clemson.  He fills the last vacant spot on the staff, joining Kevin Steele, Lance Thompson, Kirby Smart, Ron Middleton, Bo Davis, Joe Pendry, Steve Marshall, and Major Applewhite.  There is still no official word on the specific duties of each.

Do us a favor, and keep your eyes out for the Saban Sportscenter interviews on YouTube. If you happen to spot them before we do, leave a link in the comments por favor.
