Dunbar has spent 11 of the last 12 years in the National Football League as a defensive line coach, most recently with the Buffalo Bills. Despite that, he’s very familiar with the college game, and even spent time as the strength and conditioning coach at LSU under Nick Saban.
From Alabama’s release:
“I am really excited to get back into college football and to have a chance to work with such a talented group of student-athletes at The University of Alabama,” Dunbar said. “The program Coach Saban has built at Alabama is second to none, and the opportunity to work for him once again is special. I have a great appreciation for the tradition and history that surrounds Crimson Tide football, and I look forward to doing my part to contribute to this program’s continued success.”
Dunbar will pick up right where Bo Davis left off.
