Alabama football is reportedly looking in-house to fill its offensive coordinator vacancy.
Kalen DeBoer will elevate former tight ends coach Nick Sheridan after the departure of Ryan Grubb to the Seattle Seahawks. Sheridan has coached with DeBoer at Indiana, Washington and now with the Crimson Tide. Matt Zenitz of 247Sports broke the news of Sheridan’s promotion on Tuesday morning.
Sheridan is the son of former NFL defensive coordinator and current United Football League coach Bill Sheridan. The younger Sheridan started four games for Michigan in 2008 after making the team as a walk-on. Sheridan started his coaching career at Saline (Michigan) High before moving to Western Kentucky, South Florida and Tennessee.
Sheridan has served in a variety of roles from passing game coordinator to tight ends coach. He was last an offensive coordinator in 2020-21 with the Hoosiers, where he was ultimately dismissed before reconnecting with DeBoer in Washington. Sheridan helped then-Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. to a 1,645-yard season as a passer in 2020 under head coach Tom Allen.
