Report: Freddie Roach Leaving Alabama to Become Ole Miss Defensive Line Coach
A busy offseason of staff turnover continues for the Alabama football program.
The next move in Tuscaloosa will reportedly involve director of player development Freddie Roach leaving Alabama for an on-field position with the Ole Miss Rebels.
FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman was first to report the story on Thursday morning.
Roach, who played linebacker for the Crimson Tide from 2002-05, returned to the university in 2015 after spending two seasons with South Alabama. During his time in Mobile, Roach coached the outside linebackers and defensive ends.
This will be Ole Miss' second defensive line coach hire in a month. Following Chris Kiffin's departure to join his brother's staff, the Rebels brought in Tray Scott from North Carolina. But after a month on the job, Scott left for the same position on the Georgia staff.
