Alabama football got a double helping of good news this week.
After securing Charlie Strong as a defensive analyst, Nick Saban will not have to look for another offensive coordinator.
According to Chris Low of ESPN, Steve Sarkisian will remain with the Crimson Tide and is expecting a pay raise to make him one of the highest-paid assistant coaches in college football.

Sarkisian was rising in the conversation to be the next head coach at Colorado; however, the California native turned the offer down.
He made the offense prolific at Alabama in 2019 and more is expected of Sarkisian next season.
He has a lot of talented pieces back on the roster.
