  • Alabama announces shakeup in football coaching staff

"He is an essential member of our staff as he takes on a new challenge".

Nick Saban is one of the best coaches in the history of college football. It is a big plus for Alabama football that he will remain involved with the program.

Pannunzio, the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator for Alabama last season, replaces Burton Burns as running backs coach.

Joe Pannunzio has done a great job in several different roles within our organization. "Both Tosh and Michael are tremendous football coaches who will do an excellent job leading their respective units".

Delta to end NRA discount as pressure mounts
Metlife Inc .: "We value all our customers but have chose to end our discount program with the NRA", the insurer tweeted Friday. And as petitions circulate online urging companies to #BoycottNRA , the pressure to disassociate from the NRA is growing.


The latest additions to the staff are associate head coaches Dan Enos, who will handle the quarterbacks, and Craig Kuligowski, who takes over the defensive line. "He brings a wealth of knowledge with five years of head coaching experience and numerous stops as an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach". A month later, he traded a spot on Jim Harbaugh's staff to rejoin the SEC.

Enos arrives by way of Arkansas, where he was offensive coordinator from 2015-17, and after a brief stint on the MI staff last month. Before arriving in the ACC, he was a long-time assistant at Missouri under Gary Pinkel. He is highly respected for his ability to develop talent.

Saban confirmed Thursday afternoon that Mike Locksley, the Crimson Tide's co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach last season, is the new offensive coordinator and that Tosh Lupoi, the co-defensive coordinator and outside linebackers coach a year ago, is the new defensive coordinator.

Recently hired Jeff Banks will add tight ends to his role as special teams coach. Both served as co-coordinators as well the previous year. Another new assistant, Pete Golding will coach the inside linebackers and function as co-defensive coordinator. The other post-season hire, Karl Scott has replaced Derrick Ansley and will coach defensive backs. Others suggest they are also the most energetic and aggressive group of recruiters in college football.
