The Alabama Crimson Tide have lost a lot of assistants this offseason, but it appears that could be turning around soon.
One familiar face is reportedly coming back to Tuscaloosa — former OC Steve Sarkisian.
Per a tweet from ESPN’s Dianna Russini, Sarkisian turned down a chance to run the Arizona Cardinals’ offense and will instead return to Tuscaloosa:
While the Arizona Cardinals offered Steve Sarkisian the offensive coordinator position, sources say he will headed back to coach with Nick Saban at Alabama.

Sark has served as the Atlanta Falcons’ offensive coordinator the past couple of years, but he was let go following this season.
Nothing is official yet, of course, but it appears the Crimson Tide may have found their newest offensive coordinator to replace Mike Locksley.
