Rashad Johnson leaves Crimson Tide Sports Network for Buccaneers assistant coaching job
Former Alabama safety, Rashad Johnson, said goodbye to CTSN after 4 seasons and was welcomed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an assistant coach.
Rashad Johnson was a sideline reporter with Crimson Tide Sports Network radio station for four years. In June, he was hired as a "defensive assistant" for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after he assisted with training camp as one of the team's Bill Walsh Coaching Fellows. CTSN wished him well on his future.
At Alabama, Johnson had a total of 216 tackles over 3 seasons. In 2007-2008, he was a first-team All SEC-Player. Later, he was a third round draft pick to the Arizona Cardinals.
He spent seven seasons with the Cardinals (2009-2015) and one with the Tennessee Titans (2016). In Arizona, he played a total of 100 games with 346 tackles, 15 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles. In Tennessee, he played 14 games with 38 tackles.
Roger Hoover will work as the temporary sideline reporter for Alabama's home-opener against Utah State this Saturday. Hoover is the radio voice for the women's basketball team at Alabama. He has also held many football hosting jobs over the years.
Crimson Tide Sports News General Manager, Jim Carabin, told Tuscaloosa News that a replacement has not been selected yet, but they have started looking at other options for the rest of the season.
