It didn’t take long for new Colorado head coach Deion Sanders to find his next defensive coordinator. On Wednesday, Alabama safeties coach Charles Kelly will be the Buffaloes’ next defensive coordinator.
Kelly spent three seasons as Alabama’s safeties coach. He was a key reason as to why the Tide were able to land prospects like Caleb Downs, Kristian Story, and Will Anderson Jr.
He was Florida State’s defensive coordinator from 2014-2017. The Seminoles’ defense was one of the best in the country at the time. Kelly will likely be the primary recruiter on Sanders’ staff for the South. After all, he has been an elite recruiter in the area for several different programs over the years.
It is unclear at this time who Alabama will hire to be the team’s next safeties coach.
