TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Former Alabama assistant coach and Auburn head coach Pat Dye addressed the media prior to kickoff of Alabama’s game against North Texas tonight. Dye, who served as linebackers coach under Bear Bryant, is at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the 40-year reunion of the 1971 Alabama team. “I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve been over here,” Dye said. “My first reaction was just to stay at home and watch it on television, but I got to thinking about it. You know, I haven’t been back to Tuscaloosa in, say, 30 years and I’d like to go back and see all those guys I coached in the 60s and 70s.”
