The son of a former Nick Saban colleague has been hired to replace Curt Cignetti on Alabama’s coaching staff. Mike Groh — son of former Virginia head coach Al Groh — was officially hired yesterday. He served as Louisville’s quarterbacks coach last year… which followed a year as a grad assistant at Bama in 2009.
“We are excited to have Mike join our staff,” Saban said. “He did an outstanding job here a year ago and when he left, he was one that I hoped we could bring back to Alabama at some point.”
Groh will take over Cignetti’s duties as wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator. Cignetti left last month to become head coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
