Media personnel was all over the University of Alabama campus, as Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide held its first spring practice on Friday at Thomas-Drew Field. 

With 15 sessions – including the A-Day Game – Alabama got the ball going well, especially with its new assistant coaches setting a tone of discipline and accountability.

After having a second straight offseason of coaching changes, Saban appears to have a great staff for 2019. 

Listed below are some notes from the first practice along with the missing player.
