Coach DeBoer is expected to make his first move as the Crimson Tide's head coach. Former Washington offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb posted a tweet late Saturday night announcing he would not be the next head coach of the Washington Huskies.

Grubb's tweet only fueled the rumors about his involvement with the Alabama Crimson Tide as the team's offensive coordinator.

The wait is over. According to a story by Paolo Uggetti of ESPN, sources tell Chris Low, also of ESPN, that Grubb is expected to join DeBoer at Alabama as the team's new offensive coordinator.

Probably, 2023 Alabama offensive coordinator Tommy Rees will not remain with the program and search for an opportunity elsewhere.

Grubb has been with DeBoer dating back to his days at the University of Sioux Falls. Grubb served as the offensive line coach from 2007 to 2009, then served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2010 to 2013.

Grubb and DeBoer joined back together at Eastern Michigan in 2014 at Eastern Michigan. Grubb was the offensive line coach and DeBoer the offensive coordinator.

They once again joined forces in 2017 and the 2020 seasons, and they've been coaching together since 2020.

Now, they'll coach together again, this time in Tuscaloosa. Grubb commanded one of the most prolific offenses in the country last season, featuring a quarterback with over 4,500 passing yards, a running back with more than 1,000 yards, and two wide receivers with more than 1,000 yards.

Alabama has not had that accomplishment since 2021 when Bryce Young won a Heisman Trophy. Young threw for 4,872 yards, Brian Robinson Jr. rushed for 1,343 yards, Jameson Williams had 1,572 yards receiving, and John Metchie III had 1,142 yards.

DeBoer and Grubb are expected to retain more of their Washington staff, but it is unclear who at this time.
