Alabama officially announces multiple coaching changes

Alabama coach Nick Saban has promoted Mike Locksley to offensive coordinator and Josh Tupoi to defensive coordinator and hired two new assistants. Another new assistant, Pete Golding will coach the inside linebackers and function as co-defensive coordinator.

Saban confirmed Thursday afternoon that Mike Locksley, the Crimson Tide's co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach last season, is the new offensive coordinator and that Tosh Lupoi, the co-defensive coordinator and outside linebackers coach a year ago, is the new defensive coordinator. Enos and Kuligowski each will have the added title of associate head coach.

Three days after the University of Miami announced that defensive line coach Craig Kuligowski was leaving the Hurricanes program, his destination is now set in stone.

Enos is a former Arkansas offensive coordinator who had been hired by MI in January. He played quarterback at Michigan State in 1987, Saban's final season as defensive coordinator for the Spartans.

Kuligowski, 49, brings 24 years of coaching experience to the Alabama staff, which includes the past two years on Mark Richt's staff at Miami during which Miami's defensive line morphed into one of the best in college football. He replaces Karl Dunbar and will coach the defensive line.

Longtime running backs coach Burton Burns will become assistant athletic director for football.

Last season's tight ends coach, Joe Pannunzio, will take over the running backs coaching position Burns held for the last 11 years. "He is an essential member of our staff as he takes on a new challenge".

"One thing I can say about coach Burns is that he always is going to push and never make us feel like the job is done". "Both Tosh and Michael are tremendous football coaches who will do an excellent job leading their respective units".

"He is an outstanding football coach who will bring great energy to our program", Saban said about Kuligowski in a release.

"Joe Pannunzio has done a great job in several different roles within our organization". He also helped Trent Richardson and Henry win the Doak Walker Award while guiding seven running backs to National Football League careers.

"Burton has been a crucial part of our success over the past 11 years and has done an outstanding job with our running backs", Saban said in a statement.

From Arkansas to Ann Arbor to Alabama, Dan Enos' offseason is officially complete.
