Alabama set to hire Craig Kuligowski as next DL coach

In a stunning statement issued Monday evening, Miami announced that Kuligowski - who was also named the Hurricanes associate head coach a year ago - was leaving the program to "pursue other opportunities".

Miami ranked fifth with 111 tackles for a loss and was sixth with a plus-13 turnover margin.

Monday night reports surfaced, first from Bruce Feldman, that Craig Kuligowski is Saban's choice.

The Miami Hurricanes almost lost a talented assistant coach on Monday when it was rumored that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had interviewed DL coach Craig Kuligowski.

Now, it turns out Kuligowski won't be coaching either of them at Miami. Under Kuligowski, the Tigers' defense guided the program to back-to-back Southeastern Conference Championship Game appearances in 2013 and 2014.

Fans throw tennis balls in protest of Monday night games
Banners were raised reading "Eintracht says no to Mondays" and "the street takes football back". The game began to boos, and the fans maintained a chorus of whistling throughout.

Kuligowski coached two seasons at UM under Mark Richt after spending the previous 15 years at Missouri, and his work with the Hurricanes' front four was lauded.

Considering Nick Saban has recently added multiple young assistants highly respected for recruiting ability, perhaps Nick opted for another top-notch defensive line coach.

Kuligowski began his coaching career in 1992 as Toledo's recruiting coordinator. Very much like Karl Dunbar, Kuligowski is known for an ability to develop players. Despite having a need at defensive line, the Hurricanes missed out on several targets, bringing in only two defensive linemen in Nesta Silva (four-star) and Patrick Joyner (three-star).

No announcement has been made by Alabama football.
