It is always good to have a backup plan if the original plan doesn’t come through. That is the situation former Alabama QB Greg McElroy is in right now. During ESPN’s week long coverage of the BCS national title game, McElroy was impressive with his “poised delivery and knowledge of the game”. Even though he hasn’t been offered a formal contract, McElroy knows that he could get the job if he wants it.
“They haven’t said anything specifically to me, but rumors around were that if I wanted to come on, there was a place for me,” McElroy said. “They were happy about the way things went, and I felt pretty confident about how I handled myself. It’s a lot more difficult that people give it credit for.”
It looks like McElroy is going to have a job somewhere next year. Only time will tell where.
