Alabama will be adding another former player to its coaching staff for the 2015 season. According to BamaOnline, Freddie Roach is set to join Nick Saban's staff in a player personnel role.

Roach comes to Tuscaloosa from Mobile, where he spent two years at South Alabama as an assistant coach working with the defensive ends and linebackers. His coaching career began at Alabama. From 2088-10, Roach was an assistant strength and conditioning coach under Saban.

The position he will fill became vacant when Chris Samuels returned home to become the head coach at Osbourn High School in Virginia.

Roach was a standout player for the Crimson Tide during a tumultuous period in the football program. He was named the National Freshman of the Year under Dennis Franchione in 2002 before finishing his career with second team All-SEC honors in 2004 and 2005 under Mike Shula.
