Keary Colbert returns home to USC

Keary Colbert is returning home.

The former USC star is leaving his coaching position at Alabama to take a position at his alma mater.

Sports Illustrated reported that the position will be as an offensive analyst, the same position he held for the Crimson Tide.

Colbert has a brief stint in the NFL after being drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2004. He also spent time with the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions. Colbert’s NFL career came to an end in 2011 after being waived the Chiefs in the preseason.

Fans are hoping this “homecoming” can revitalize the program. Colbert was a member of one of the best USC teams in program history, having been a captain of the 2003 team that won a national championship.

Colbert’s coaching resumé is still relatively small with less than 5 years of experience. Colbert’s coaching career began in 2013 at Georgia State before he had a 2-year stint at Alabama (2014-2016). Regardless, he should be a good fit for the Trojans.
