Avery Johnson has hired Bob Simon's replacement. Yasir Rosemond, previously an assistant coach at Georgia, has joined the Alabama staff. Rosemond, a native of Atlanta, brings over a dozen years of coaching experience to the bench. Prior to Georgia, Rosemond was an assistant at Samford, Seattle University and Oregon, which is his alma mater.
I don't have an opinion on this hire. Honestly, this is the first time I've heard of Rosemond so it's impossible for me to have an informed opinion on this hire. He's got some experience, and I trust Avery to make the best possible hire so I support it. It's never a bad thing to have an assistant coach with Atlanta connections. I still hope that we will receive some kind of statement regarding Bob Simon's dismissal because I would like to know what happened. That said, it's good to have the staff in place before the summer workouts begin. Onwards and upwards.
