It’s not official yet, but multiple reports are claiming that University of Washington offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier has been hired to fill the same spot at Alabama.
Prior to his stop in Washington, Nussmeier has served as a quarterbacks coach in the NFL (St. Louis Rams) and in the Big Ten (Michigan State).
Ironically, Nussmeier replaced Jim McElwain at Fresno State when Saban tabbed McElwain to run the Tide offense in 2008. Now he’ll replace McElwain as the ex-Bama coordinator takes over as head coach at Colorado State.
Many view the Washington offense as being the baby of head coach Steve Sarkisian, rather than of Nussmeier. Of course, some look at Bama’s defense as being Nick Saban’s rather than Kirby Smart’s. Bottom line — Nussmeier and Sarkisian had the Huskies offense ranked 25th in the nation in scoring offense this past season.
