For the second time in two months, reports say that Alabama Crimson Tide defensive backs coach Greg Brown will leave his position.
Pete Roussel of CoachingSearch.com reports that Brown is leaving for a position with once-and-future head coach Bobby Petrino’s Louisville Cardinals. Roussel says that Brown will coach safeties for the redbirds.
Brown spent one year at Alabama, after previous stops with Wyoming, Purdue, Colorado and Arizona in the college ranks, and with Tampa Bay, San Francisco, Houston, San Diego and New Orleans in the NFL.
It was reported in January that Brown was leaving, and that the move would allow Kevin Steele to move to an on-field role coaching the defensive secondary.
Alabama has made several moves with its coaching staff in the very early offseason. Steele, who was previously director of player personnel, announced he was leaving for Louisville himself, but has returned with the promise of an on-field job. Alabama then rehired Bo Davis to coach the defensive line.
