Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier met with the media Sunday morning for a rare press conference prior to Thursday’s Sugar Bowl matchup with the Oklahoma Sooners.
Among the topics he covered was the recent appearance of former USC Trojans coach Lane Kiffin at the Tide’s practices:
“Any time you have an opportunity to sit down and visit with somebody and talk football and talk different ways of doing things and have somebody look at maybe opening your eyes to a different way of doing what you’re doing, it’s always good,” Nussmeier said. “Any time we spend with other coaching staffs or other coaches, we try to maximize that.”
On being interviewed for the Washington Huskies head coaching position:
“I’d like to be a head coach some day in the right situation and having ties that I have to the University of Washington and an understanding for what that program is about, that was an opportunity for our family that coach Saban fully supported,” Nussmeier said. “It was a very good experience.”
Nussmeier’s Alabama offense ranked 36th in the country in 2013 in total yards per game.
