Alabama will be searching for its fourth offensive coordinator in just 14 months after Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian both left last season. Daboll’s time at Alabama was the first time he had ever been an offensive coordinator in college.
Most of Daboll’s experience comes from the NFL. He was offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs all at one point. He spent three seasons as the tight ends coach for the New England Patriots before coming to Alabama.
This season, Alabama’s offense averaged 37 points per game and 444 yards per game. Alabama ranked 15th in the nation in points per game and first in the SEC in that category.
Alabama will now search for yet another offensive coordinator. This is the third major assistant to leave for another job this offseason. Jeremy Pruitt is now the head coach at Tennessee, while Derrick Ansley is the defensive backs coach of the Oakland Raiders.
