Much like the addition of Sal Sunseri, there has been no official announcement but it appears that former Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood will join the Crimson Tide as the OL coach.

Flood was head man at Rutgers from 2012–2015 succeeding Greg Schiano who had him as an assistant at that school since 2005. The 2015 Scarlet Knights season was marred by alleged misconduct by Flood and the arrests on violent felony criminal charges of several players. He was relieved of his duties after a 4–8 (1–7) season.

After a year out of football, Flood was hired by the Atlanta Falcons to be the assistant offensive line coach where he worked with Steve Sarkisian. Just last week the Falcons had promoted him to a game/clock management role which was widely applauded by the Dirty Bird Nation.
