After again securing the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class on Wednesday, Alabama has made yet another addition to the team.
The Crimson Tide will hire Derrick Ansley to be their new defensive assistant, according to TideSports.com’s Aaron Suttles. Ansley was a graduate assistant for Alabama from 2010-11 before becoming a defensive backs coach at UCF for a year. He later served as a cornerbacks coach at Tennessee for a year, and then joined coach Mark Stoops at Kentucky, where he spent the past three seasons as a secondary coach.
He was recently promoted to co-defensive coordinator in January.
Suttles reports that Ansley will likely work with the secondary while new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will focus on the inside linebackers.
