Alabama promotes Mike Locksley to full-time assistant

To give you an idea of just how on the mountaintop Alabama head coach Nick Saban is, coaches who have held his position at lesser schools vie for the opportunity to be full-time assistants on his staff.
Today, the Crimson Tide promoted Mike Locklsley to a full-time offensive assistant under Steve Sarkisian’s offense.
Locksley served as an analyst on the staff all of last season.
Locksley coached the New Mexico Lobos to a 2-26 record in a little over two seasons. He was fired midway through his third year as coach after starting 0-4. With Mario Cristobal moving to Oregon to be their offensive coordinator, there was an opening for Locksley to join the staff as a positions coach. It has not yet been made clear what position he will be coaching, though.
Locksley, who is now 47, could conceivably rise through the ranks of the Alabama system and find better and better opportunities elsewhere. Lane Kiffin is the most recent of head coaching retreads who have rebuilt themselves under the successful umbrella of the Alabama football program.
