Alabama's coaching staff was a little touch and go when Ryan Grubb and Scott Huff were hired away by the Seattle Seahawks, and then again when William Inge was hired by Tennessee.

Alabama has been officially announcing the coaching staff, although none of the contracts have been approved by the university board of trustees yet.

Alabama has announced the official hiring of Chris Kapilovic as the offensive line coach, Bryan Ellis as the tight end coach, and Christian Robinson as the edge rushers/outside linebacker's coach.

Alabama head coach Kalen DeBoer released a statement about all three men,

“We were able to also secure three of the finest coaches in the nation to finish out our staff with the hiring of Bryan Ellis, Chris Kapilovic, and Christian Robinson,” DeBoer said. “Chris is one of the most respected offensive line coaches in the game with a reputation for recruiting and developing his players. Christian does an outstanding job of building relationships on both the recruiting trail and in his position room, where he gets the absolute best of his players. Ellis is one of the best offensive minds in college football and is a perfect fit for our staff.”
