Alabama hires Karl Dunbar as defensive line coach
Alabama hired former Buffalo Bills defensive line coach Karl Dunbar for the same position with the Crimson Tide. After two months of unemployment, Dunbar has now found another job: Alabama has hired him as its defensive line coach. “We have known Karl Dunbar for a long time and he has a lot of experiencing coaching the defensive line in both the NFL and college,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said. “Karl is very familiar with our program from an organizational standpoint as well as the defensive scheme we run. He is a fantastic football coach who brings a wealth of coaching experience while being a great asset in recruiting.” Dunbar has been a defensive line coach for the Bills, Jets, Vikings and Bears, as well as at LSU and Oklahoma State. Dunbar replaced Bo Davis, who resigned after committing recruiting violations. “I am really excited to get back into college football and to have a chance to work with such a talented group of student-athletes at The University of Alabama,” Dunbar said. “The program Coach Saban has built at Alabama is second to none, and the opportunity to work for him once again is special. I have a great appreciation for the tradition and history that surrounds Crimson Tide football, and I look forward to doing my part to contribute to this program’s continued success.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
