At least one of the two open coordinator positions with the Alabama Crimson Tide has been filled according to Pete Thamel.
Former Notre Dame star quarterback Tommy Rees has accepted the Alabama offensive coordinator position.
Rees has spent the last three seasons with Notre Dame as their OC and has been on staff for the past six seasons
Last season he was connected to the LSU job when Brian Kelly left to take over the program following the firing of Ed Oregon.
He ultimately stayed with Marcus Freeman but now makes the move to the SEC with the Tide.
According to Fighting Irish Wire, Notre Dame was prepared to match any offer made to Rees.
Apparently, that wasn’t enough to keep him on staff.
Head coach Nick Saban gets the offense taken care of but now must fill the defensive coordinator
position that was made vacant when Pete Golding left for Ole Miss.
