Nick Saban is not finished tinkering with the 2016 Alabama coaching staff.
The Crimson Tide are expected to add former UCF offensive coordinator and running backs coach Brent Key to take over as offensive line coach, a move that will shift Mario Cristobal to tight ends and offensive tackles coach, according to Sports Illustrated‘s Thayer Evans.
Key left Orlando on odd terms after the 2015 season.
Central Florida paid him $700,000 to honor a contract stipulation when it decided to look elsewhere for George O’Leary’s replacement as Knights head coach, according to OrlandoSentinel.com‘s Mike Bianchi and Iliana Limón Romero.
The 37-year-old played offensive guard at Georgia Tech from 1997-2000 and spent the previous 11 seasons under O’Leary at Central Florida, rising from a graduate assistant to the team’s offensive coordinator in that time.
