Two NFL assistants among four named Alabama offensive coordinator candidates
Alabama coach Nick Saban is narrowing his list after Steve Sarkisian's departure
Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports reported Monday that New England Patriots tight ends coach Brian Daboll will interview for the vacancy. Daboll was a graduate assistant under Saban at Michigan State. Former Houston Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey, who spent the last two seasons in the NFL but is currently without a job, is the other pro candidate.
Tide assistant Mike Locksley, who was recently named co-offensive coordinator to Sarkisian, and UCLA offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, fresh off a move from Michigan, are the other coaches named in the report.
Sarkisian was promoted to offensive coordinator ahead of the College Football Playoff National Championship against Clemson after Lane Kiffin was basically let go to coach Florida Atlantic. Sarkisian suddenly left to take the OC job with the Atlanta Falcons on Feb. 7.
Whomever succeeds Sarkisian will have one of the most dynamic young talents in college football in quarterback Jalen Hurts. Kiffin did an excellent job utilizing Hurts' dual-threat ability, something the Crimson Tide's new OC will have to continue.
