It would appear that Alabama's search for a new wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator is over, as according to a report on BamaOnline.com, Mike Groh is returning to Tuscaloosa to take the job.
A year after studying the Nick Saban way of coaching, Mike Groh is coming back to the University of Alabama to serve as his wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator.
Sources tell BamaOnline that Alabama is expected to announce his hiring this week. 
Groh, who spent last season at Charlie Strong's quarterbacks coach at Louisville, will replace Curt Cignetti, who was named the new head coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Groh spent 2009 as a grad assistant with Alabama after spending eight years as an assistant under his father, Al Groh, at Virginia. Al Groh coached alongside Nick Saban with the Cleveland Browns. Mike Groh gets the job over a number of other coaches who had been rumored for it, including former Mississippi State head coach Sylvester Croom, former Minnesota head coach Tim Brewster and former Clemson offensive coordinator Bill Napier just to name a few.
