There's no Place Like Home

Former Tide guard Antoine Pettway has clicked his heels together and is returning to Tuscaloosa to be an assistant coach on Gottfried's staff, replacing Kobie Baker. Pettway is most remembered by SEC fans for his Ruby Red slippers high tops and the layup he hit to beat Florida after the Gators apparently made a conscious decision not to guard him.(see video below)

And while it's a good story, I wonder why this hire was made though. He's part of the Tide Nation, no doubt, but wouldn't it have made more sense for Gottfried to have hired a veteran coach who could really teach his players something?
