Nick Saban is now targeting Notre Dame’s Tommy Rees to be his new Offensive Coordinator
There have been rumors swirling that Nick Saban and Alabama were locked in on Ryan Grubb of Washington to be their new offensive coordinator, but that changed when Grubb turned down the Crimson Tide.
Several thought Saban would turn to Jeff Lebby at Oklahoma or even Freddie Kitchens the former NFL coach, but that is not the way he is looking.
According to Chris Low of ESPN, Tommy Rees has emerged as the top target for Saban and Bama.
He’s just 30 years old and has been Notre Dame’s OC since 2020. Last season with a banged up QB room and starter Tyler Buchner playing just three total games, the Fighting Irish still managed to go 9-4 and averaged 31.8 points a game.
It will be interesting to see what Rees could do with an Alabama roster.
