Saban Says Nussmeier Will Be “A Great Fit” For the Tide


As expected, Alabama and head coach Nick Saban announced the return of Lance Thompson and the hiring of offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier to the Bama coaching staff offically.

Saban seemed excited about both hires.

Saban said he was excited to have Nussmeier join his staff

“We are excited to have Doug as our new offensive coordinator at Alabama,” Saban said. “Not only does he have a good deal of experience as a coach and a player both at the college and NFL level, but he also brings a great passion for the game and a lot of energy and enthusiasm.”

Nussmeier seemed equally excited about his new job.

“I’ve heard a lot about Alabama football in terms of the history, the tradition, the great fans, and I can already see why this is such a special place,” Nussmeier said. “I want to thank coach (Steve) Sarkisian, the players, the staff and everyone at the University of Washington for all they did for me and for our family while we were there. It was a great experience and we have great memories from our time at the UW.”

Meanwhile, Thompson also seems to be happy to be back in Tuscaloosa.

“As a defensive coach, it doesn’t get any better,” he said. “I look forward to doing my part in helping to maintain the success coach Saban has brought back to the program. The tradition and history at Alabama is like no other place in the country when it comes to college football and this is a special time to be a part of that.”

Look for this to be a plug and play thing for Alabama which is exactly what Alabama wants.
