Alabama adds to its embarrassment of talented coaches and recruiters.

This is a pretty big deal on the recruiting front, as former head coach/offensive coordinator, and all-world recruiter Mike Locksley has joined the Alabama football staff as an "analyst."

Coach Locksley may have flamed out spectacularly at New Mexico, but he is a good offensive mind and his recruiting is otherwordly. Lane Kiffin will not lack for more innovative suggestions and the Tide's recruiting, already the best in the nation, will benefit from Locksley's domination of the fertile DC/No. Virginia/Maryland talent base.

The rich get richer, indeed.

Welcome aboard, Coach Locksley and Roll Tide!
