The search for the Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator position is heating up as the Tide are currently in pursuit of Notre Dame offensive coordinator Tommy Rees. A plane from the University of Alabama is in South Bend, Indiana to pick Rees up to meet with Coach Saban in Tuscaloosa later today.
There has to be some level of mutual interest for the two sides to meet, but we don't know how serious the two sides are. Rees just finished his third year as an offensive coordinator with the Irish and they went 9-4 with a bowl win over South Carolina. The offense was not the issue as they scored nearly 32 points per game.
Rees could become a serious head coaching candidate in the next few years with the guidance of Coach Saban.
