Alabama football recently lost their defensive coordinator Pete Golding to SEC rival Ole Miss.
Now, the search has begun to see who will replace the former play-caller over the past five seasons in Tuscaloosa.
Golding may not have been a fan-favorite, but he did assemble,
and lead some of the top recruiting classes that Alabama managed to land in recent years
. He was an intricate part of the Tide’s recruiting efforts in states like Louisiana and Texas.
The search for a new defensive coordinator is likely already underway and kept under wraps.
