I would agree that it might be seen as a slap at Garrett, but I think less so if it was Saban, and especially if it turns out that Garrett was on board with the idea to begin with. Especially if like you say that it is framed as a GM-powers-like hire.
With the right person, Garrett might even be a little relieved to have someone with experience and football cred to bounce ideas off of, get support from, and have as a sounding board. It would sure have to be the right person or it could play out like you're saying.
