Perry won two national championships as a member of the Crimson Tide in 2011 and 2012, and two in 2017 and 2020 as a coach.
In his five years in Tuscaloosa, he totaled 119 tackles, two interceptions, and nine pass deflections. Perry went undrafted in 2015 but was signed to the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. After a short stint with the Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles in 2016 he joined the Alabama staff in 2017 as a graduate assistant.
Perry worked his way up from graduate assistant to a defensive analyst for the 2019 and 2020 seasons. In 2021 the Atlanta Falcons came knocking and Perry answered, accepting a job as a defensive backs coach in the NFL.
