For the first time since Nick Saban's debut season in Tuscaloosa, someone other than Kirby Smart will be coaching the Alabama defense.

When Kirby Smart left to become the head coach at the University of Georgia, Saban brought in Jeremy Pruitt to take over as the defensive coordinator. Having already spent time on Saban's staff, Pruitt is familiar with the Crimson Tide program.

We got a chance to spotlight the new defensive coordinator while he coached the inside linebackers during day 4 of Alabama's spring football practice. Watch the video above to get a look at Pruitt in action.

The Crimson Tide will return to the practice field again on Monday.
