WATCH: Three reasons to be excited for Steve Sarkisian’s return to Alabama

Steve Sarkisian gets a second chance at Alabama thanks to head coach, Nick Saban.

After leaving the program, following the 2017 College Football Playoff title game, Sarkisian spent the last two seasons with the Altanta Falcons of the National Football League.

He coached a group that finished sixth in the league in total offense, while helping Matt Ryan (two 4,000-yard passing seasons) and Julio Jones (1,677 yards receiving, led NFL in 2018) and Calvin Ridley all have success in 2018.
