Former CLEVELAND BROWNS GM PHIL SAVAGE has been named as KENNY STABLER's replacement as analyst for UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA football broadcasts this season.
SAVAGE, who once served as a graduate assistant coach at ALABAMA, was selected by LEARFIELD SPORTS' CRIMSON TIDE SPORTS MARKETING to replace STABLER, who took a leave of absence last season after his JUNE 8th DUI arrest and announced he was leaving the broadcasts earlier this year, alongside play-by-play voice ELI GOLD. SAVAGE's tenure in CLEVELAND was marked by conflicts with coaches, players, and fans, including a widely-reported profane e-mail exchange with a fan that preceded his departure.
