Joel Klatt, the former Colorado quarterback and current FOX college football analyst, made an appearance on the Colin Cowherd show and shared what he called a conspiracy theory about Nick Saban’s reason for hiring Steve Sarkisian as an analyst.
Klatt pointed out that Saban is often a step or two ahead of the competition and he believes he might have been in this case as well.

“I think Nick Saban hired Steve Sarkisian because he knew LSU was going to struggle offensively and he didn’t want them to have an offensive coordinator on the market to hire right away for this season,” Klatt said.
Cowherd immediately agreed. It’s an interesting theory, but we’ll probably never know how accurate it is. Saban isn’t exactly known for sharing his thinking when it comes to these kinds of topics.
