Neil Callaway is entering his fifth season with a 15-33 record and let us not forget that he has taken over for Watson Brown, who coached from ’95-’06. UAB has only been a division one program since 1991!
They are arguably the worst program in C-USA, as far as facilities are concerned. It is tough to get any players to play for the program, with Alabama and Auburn getting all the top dogs out there.
UAB is the alma-mater of Atlanta Falcons superstar Roddy White and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joe Webb. The only other current NFL player is Bryan Thomas, OLB/DE of the New York Jets.
That is correct. There are only three current NFL players who went to UAB. UAB had better change that if they expect to reach a bowl game anytime soon.
