Alabama has made no official announcement, but a newly created Twitter account gave away some big news: Karl Dunbar is the Crimson Tide’s new defensive line coach.
The Twitter profile @UACoachDunbar first appeared on Monday and posted the following message: “Blessed to be part of The Process #RollTide.”
Sources confirmed Dunbar’s hire with SEC Country on Monday evening.
As many as eight days ago, Dunbar was reported to be the newest member of Nick Saban‘s coaching staff. The longtime NFL assistant was fired by the Buffalo Bills this spring, and previously worked for the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings.
Now, Dunbar will work under Saban for the first time since serving as LSU’s strength and conditioning coach in 2000 and 2001.
He replaces Bo Davis, who resigned last month after running afoul of the NCAA’s recruiting bylaws. The Alabama on-field staff now appears to set heading into the 2016 season.
