1996 1997 and 1998 Kirby and Champ Bailey played together in our defensive backfield both 1st Team All-SEC. Kirby also played the year before Champ in 1995. Kirby as I explained his play for us is the 1 who called the defense for us on the field. You watched him every down every game call our defense on the field. He also CALLED THE PLAYS at Alabama for 8 years as their Defensive Coordinator, not Nick Saban – half of the time National Champion during which said time Mark Richt was here the same 8 years not even ranked half the time in the Final AP Poll Top 25.
