Alabama will be headed into its first game of the season without one of its assistant coaches.

Associate defensive coordinator and safeties coach Charles Kelly will not be with the Crimson Tide on Saturday for its first game of the season against Missouri, according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo! Sports.

The Tigers will also be missing their own defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison for the game.


There is currently no explanation as to why the coaches will not be in attendance.

Kelly joined head coach Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama in 2019 after one season as the special teams coordinator at Tennessee. He also coached five seasons (2013-17) at Florida State and served a total of four seasons as the team’s defensive coordinator.
