Alabama expected to hire former Texas LB coach Coleman Hutzler

·1 min read

Nick Saban is adding former Texas linebackers coach Coleman Hutzler as Alabama’s new special teams coordinator.

The 2017 Broyles Award finalist stems from the Will Muschamp coaching tree.

Alabama will be the fourth stop in as many years for Hutzler. He spent fours seasons at South Carolina before taking the Texas linebackers coach job in 2020. Hutzler did not have enough time to make a huge impact in Austin. Steve Sarkisian chose not to keep Hutzler on staff after taking the Texas job in early 2021.

It did not take long for Hutzler to find a new gig. Lane Kiffin swooped in and hired Hutzler as the special teams coordinator at Ole Miss ahead of the 2021 season where the Rebels had a tremendous 10-3 season.

Hutzler will coach from the opposing sideline in DKR next season when Alabama takes on Texas in Week 2.
