New Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier not only will be replacing Jim McElwain on a coaching staff for the second time, but the two served three years together on the same Michigan State staff from 2003-05. Linehan was the Spartans' quarterbacks coach. McElwain was the assistant head coach and coached wide receivers and special teams. Also on that coach was Alabama offensive line coach Jeff Soutland, who coached the Spartans' offensive line from 2000-2006.

Who is Doug Nussmeier? Here's a look at the background of Alabama's new offensive coordinator | al.com Well, if we're bringing back Lance Thompson over a bridge everyone thought was burned makes sense we'll target an OC with previous experience working with current assistants. We'll have more on him later, but for now I think this is a great hire for Alabama. We weren't looking for anyone to fundamentally change the way play offensively, just someone who is a good recruiter, can develop QBs/WRs, and generally mesh well with the rest of the staff as far as game planning/execution is concerned. Sounds like he fits the bill to me.
