TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama assistant basketball coach Scott Pospichal won’t return to the Crimson Tide’s staff next season, Pospichal confirmed to SEC Country.
When reached for comment on Wednesday afternoon, Pospichal said he enjoyed his experience in Tuscaloosa, but said he wanted to get back to the Dallas area, which is where his family is.
Pospichal added that he believes Alabama basketball is “heading in the right direction” under coach Avery Johnson.
Johnson named Pospichal — who has over 30 years of coaching experience at the AAU, junior college and high school levels — assistant coach in June 2015.
The Tuscaloosa News’ Cecil Hurt was the first to report the news.
Hurt and KentuckySportsRadio.com’s Matt Jones both reported that John Pelphrey is scheduled to interview for a job on Johnson’s staff. Pelphrey, who was the head coach at Arkansas from 2007-11, was an assistant coach at Florida from 2011-15.
