Notre Dame’s Tommy Rees Accepts Alabama Job

Written by Tony Ghaul

Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide have officially got their man, as Tommy Rees has accepted a deal with Alabama, via Mike Berardino of ND Insider.

Rees replaces Bill O’Brien, who left to join the New England Patriots, as Alabama offensive coordinator. At age 30, Rees is Saban’s youngest coordinator since Will Muschamp as defensive coordinator at LSU in 2002.

Tommy Rees has been Notre Dame’s offensive coordinator since 2020. He started with the Fighting Irish as their quarterbacks coach in 2017 and held that title into his tenure as OC.

The Fighting Irish offense thrived under Rees prior to a 2022 season that was hampered by a Week 2 injury to starting QB Tyler Buchner.

Alabama had one of the best offenses in the country this past season. The Crimson Tide ranked fourth in scoring offense (41.1 PPG) and 30th in total offense (195.5).

Rees will now be tasked with ensuring Alabama’s offense stays at the elite level that it is accustomed too.
