Report: Ole Miss Looking To Hire Alabama Staffer Freddie Roach As Defensive Line Coach

Freddie Roach, a former Alabama linebacker and currently the Crimson Tide director of player development, could be leaving his alma mater for Ole Miss.

According to a report by FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman, Roach is expected to take the defensive line coaching job at Ole Miss.

Roach has spent the last two seasons in Tuscaloosa after previously serving as defensive ends and outside linebackers coach at South Alabama. He replaces Tray Scott at Ole Miss, who made the jump over to Georgia in January after just one month on the Ole Miss staff.

Roach also has coaching experience at Murray State and East Mississippi Community College. He was an All-SEC player at Alabama from 2002-2005.
