Alabama reportedly will lose a key member of its athletic department.
On Wednesday, Football Scoop’s Zach Barnett reported that Alabama associate athletics director Ed Marynowitz is expected to leave the school. Barnett reports that Marynowitz, who works with the Crimson Tide’s player personnel department and football operations while assisting with athletic administration, began his current role in June 2016.
Barnett reports that Marynowitz “holds an offer to join super agent Jimmy Sexton’s staff.” Longtime NFL personnel executive Michael Lombardi also shared word via Twitter on Wednesday that Marynowitz has an offer to join the Oakland Raiders and work in Jon Gruden’s personnel department.

Here’s how Barnett describes Marynowitz’s role with Alabama:
Marynowitz holds a key off-the-field role for the Crimson Tide. As associate AD for football, he serves as a point person between the player personnel and football operations departments while also serving as the football program’s liaison with the athletic administration.
Marynowitz is in his second stint with the Crimson Tide. He joined the program in December 2008 as director of player personnel, helping ramp up the dynasty that continues to this day.
Before his current stint in Tuscaloosa, Marynowitz worked for the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles in those franchises’ respective personnel departments. Alabama beat Georgia on Monday in the National Championship Game.
