LOOK: Alabama fans react to DC Pete Golding leaving for Ole Miss

Former Alabama football defensive coordinator Pete Golding was with the Crimson Tide in that position since 2018. He fielded some quality defenses, but he never seemingly won over the fans.

After four seasons working for Nick Saban, Golding made a move this week. He is staying in the SEC West and will serve as defensive coordinator at Mississippi under Lane Kiffin.

The news shocked some but was expected by others. The reason for the move is not clear, though some believe it was a mutual parting of ways.

Here’s what fans are saying about the news.
