Report: Pannunzio Hired At Bama For Off-Field Role

On Friday, reports out of Alabama listed former Miami Hurricanes’ special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Joe Pannunzio as a possible candidate for a role in the UA football offices.  Mike Vollmar left Bama’s job of associate athletics director for football in January and Pannunzio was believed to be a candidate to replace him.

This morning, reports that Saban has indeed hired Pannunzio for “an off-the-field role.”

From the looks of him, Pannunzio might serve as Saban’s “Clemenza,” hiding pistols behind toilets whenever necessary.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannoli.

Vandy Still Looking For A D-Line Coach; Secondary Coach Reportedly Onboard

Earlier this week, we told you that Vanderbilt — though no official announcement has been made — had hired Bob Shoop (from William & Mary) and Brent Pry (from Georgia Southern) to act as co-defensive coordinators. — the Rivals site covering the Commodores — has also reported that new coach James Franklin has hired former Miami Hurricanes secondary coach Wesley McGriff.  McGriff (photo at left) would be the first member of Vandy’s new staff to have recruited extensively in the Deep South for an FBS school.  In addition to Miami, he also spent two seasons on Guy Morriss’ staff at Kentucky.

As was the case with his offensive staff, Franklin apparently wants to announce his defensive hires all at once.  So until he inks a defensive line coach, expect no official announcements from Nashville’s West End.
