If you’ve been following college football for the last several years, you’ve probably heard the name Clint Trickett. Trickett was a quarterback at West Virginia after transferring in from Florida State, where he lost the starting competition to Jameis Winston. However, he retired from football before his senior season due to concussions. Since then, he’s gotten into coaching, including being the quarterbacks coach at East Mississippi Community College, the junior college featured on Netflix’s “Last Chance U.” Now, Trickett is adding to that resume, as he’s been hired Alabama serve in a “support role,” according to BamaOnline.com.
The exact nature of Trickett’s position is unclear at this time, but one would expect him to be working on the offensive side of the ball.
In addition to his on-field and coaching accomplishments, you may know Trickett for another, Alabama-related reason. Shortly before the Tide were set to take on Trickett’s Mountaineers in 2014, Trickett told reporters that Nick Saban’s daughter was his first kiss. Apparently that was not enough to keep Saban from bringing him on his staff.
