Alabama head coach Nick Saban officially announced the hire of Brian Daboll who will serve as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Daboll has spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach (TE/OL coach) for the New England Patriots. He will replace Steve Sarkisian who left to be the Atlanta Falcons. Per

"We are certainly happy to add a coach the caliber of Brian Daboll to our staff," Saban said. "I have known Brian since he worked for us as a GA at Michigan State and he has a fantastic reputation in the coaching profession. He brings a tremendous work ethic to the job and has a wealth of football knowledge. Brian is a great teacher of the game, and someone who can relate well to our players. We are excited to welcome Brian, his wife Beth and their family to Tuscaloosa."

Daboll comes to Tuscaloosa after spending 17 years in the NFL and the past three seasons with the New England Patriots, fresh off of a Super Bowl victory. He coached tight ends for two seasons and offensive line for one in his second stint with the Patriots. He spent a total of 10 seasons in New England and helped the team to five Super Bowl titles (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLIX and LI).
