REPORT: Alabama's Bill O'Brien has become the primary target for Patriots OC job

To the joy of most Alabama football fans, it is being reported by Pro Football Talk that Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien,

 has emerged as the leading candidate to land the play-calling duties for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.

O’Brien just wrapped up his second season as Alabama’s offensive coordinator but does have previous experience in New England.

O’Brien worked for coach Belichick and the Patriots from 2007-11 including being the offensive coordinator during the 2011 season.

To say that O’Brien’s tenure in Tuscaloosa has been turbulent would be an understatement.

Despite helping guide Bryce Young to become the program’s first quarterback to win a Heisman Trophy,

fans have not been happy with the lack of creativity and situational play calling.

It now appears that O’Brien’s tenure in Tuscaloosa could be coming to and end.
