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 is expected to hire Ole Miss special teams coordinator Coleman Hutzler, sources tell @on3sports.
Before Ole Miss, he was co-DC and linebackers coach at Texas after four years as linebackers coach and special teams coordinator at South Carolina.https://t.co/PtjjA84ypq

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.
