New Alabama head coach Kalen DeBoer has to follow Nick Saban and his mega-success with the Crimson Tide, similar to the line of coaches who took the reins in Tuscaloosa after the legendary Bear Bryant retired in 1982.

Bryant compiled a 232-46-9 record during his iconic stint as the Alabama football coach. How did the others after him fare?
