Former Alabama OL promoted to positional coach at Colorado

·1 min read

Former Alabama offensive lineman, William Vlachos, who played with the team from 2007-2011, has accepted a job as the new offensive line coach at Colorado.

Vlachos was a key member of the offensive line that blocked for Mark Ingram’s 2009 Heisman campaign. He went undrafted, but was signed by the Tennessee Titans in 2012. By 2013, Vlachos was back with the Crimson Tide, but this time as a graduate assistant, and later, an analyst.

In 2020, he began working at Colorado as a specialist coach, but will now be promoted to offensive line coach.

BuffaloesWire site editor, Jack Carlough, has high praise for Vlachos and what he’s already been able to accomplish through a smaller role prior to this promotion:

The winding road that many college coaches experience has now brought Vlachos the opportunity to help a struggling Buffaloes’ O-line. Coming off Rodrigue’s final game on Oct. 25 against Cal, which sacked Brendon Lewis six times, Vlachos helped engineer the O-line’s best performance of the year at Oregon. Lewis was sacked just once and the offense put up 29 points against a strong Ducks’ D.
