Alabama to hire offensive coordinator, but still looking for offensive talent

Alabama has hired offensive coordinator Nick Saban to lead the Tide’s offense for the 2020 season.

Alabama has lost the only two games Saban has coached since becoming the program’s coach in 2011, but has won nine straight.

Saban will report to interim offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead, who was fired following last season’s 12-4 season.

Saban also will serve as offensive coordinator for the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta in 2020.

A former wide receiver at Southern Miss, Saban is one of the most recognizable faces in college football, having won the national championship with the Tigers in 2002 and 2003.

Saban was named the SEC’s Coach of the Year in 2004 and 2005.

He is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame and has coached the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and the NBA All-Star Game.

In the past year, Saban has made significant progress in recruiting and recruiting targets for the Crimson Tide.

He has recruited five-star defensive end and three-star wide receiver DeAndre Washington to Alabama and recruited three-stars running back Jalen Hurts to the Tide.

Saban has also recruited four-star cornerback and two-star safety Reggie Ragland to the program.
