Tosh Lupoi, Alabama’s outside linebackers coach, has a history with the Cal program. And it looks like his involvement with the program will remain just that — history.
According to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports, Lupoi is not expected to join Justin Wilcox’s staff at the Pac-12 school. Lupoi played at Cal and was an assistant coach back during the Jeff Tedford days.

Lupoi is widely regarded as an excellent recruiter and has plenty of ties to the California region. Alabama lost Mario Cristobal, who was the program’s recruiting coordinator and tackles and tight ends coach, to Oregon on Friday.
Alabama has led the country in sacks in each of the last two seasons. Lupoi has developed the likes of Tim Williams and Ryan Anderson into potential first-round draft picks.
Alabama also lost offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin to Florida Atlantic earlier in the offseason. He was replaced by Steve Sarkisian.
