The University of Alabama hasn't made it official, but it appears Nick Saban found his replacement for defensive line coach Bo Davis. 

Longtime NFL assistant Karl Dunbar, who was expected to be hired by Alabama following the resignation of Davis, launched a Twitter account and sent out this first message.

Dunbar worked in the NFL from 2006 until this past season with the Buffalo Bills. Prior to his latest stop, Dunbar coached for the Vikings, Bears, and Jets.

His college coaching experience includes time with Saban at LSU as the assistant strength and conditioning coach from 2000-2001. Dunbar excelled as a player at LSU and started three years along the defensive line.

Dunbar will have the opportunity to work with one of the strongest defenses in college football next season. Pass rusher Tim Williams and defensive lineman Jonathan Allen are both listed among the top 15 in Mel Kiper's first 2017 Big Board.
