Nick Saban adds former Texas A&M grad assistant to Alabama’s staff

Cedric Mason - Touchdown Alabama Magazinec

Nick Saban is getting all the defensive minds together for this season. 

After hiring Charlie Strong as an analyst and Max Bullough as a graduate assistant, Saban is bringing Bert Biffani from Texas A&M University as a defensive analyst. He joins the Crimson Tide after spending last season with Jimbo Fisher as a grad assistant. 

Biffani was with Fisher at Florida State from 2013-17 (five seasons) as a quality control coach. 

He helped the Seminoles capture a BCS National Championship in 2013 and two Atlantic Coast Conference titles in 2013-14. Biffani contributed to four 10-win seasons and in February of 2018, he was hired to Tennessee as the quality control coach for Jeremy Pruitt. With Saban knowing Fisher and Pruitt very well, hiring a guy that’s worked with both is big for him.
