The “Road to Saban” series continues with a look at the four seasons at Alabama under head coach Mike DuBose, who took over after Gene Stallings‘ retirement. Cecil Hurt discusses his tenure with Taylor Watson, curator of the Bryant Museum, and Ben Jones. They discuss Alabama’s 1999 SEC championship but also the discipline issues, friction among coaches, the off-field mistakes by DuBose and the NCAA scandal that crippled the program after he was fired.
