Grubb, an Iowa native, coached with DeBoer at Fresno State and Washington. He orchestrated an offense for the Huskies that produced a two-time 4,000+ yard quarterback in Michael Penix Jr., a 1,000+ yard running back (Dillon Johnson), and four 1,000+ yard wide receivers in 2022 and 2023. Grubb guided Washington’s offense to 14 victories in 2023, including a Pac-12 Championship and a berth in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Rumors and speculation began to surface on Grubb possibly leaving the Crimson Tide for the National Football League to coach the Seattle Seahawks. He put the rumors to bed on Wednesday at a Red Elephant Club event inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Grubb is staying with the Tide.

“I am Ryan Grubb, I am your new offensive coordinator,” he said via the Next Round Show to the Red Elephant Club.

Alabama fans are pleased to know Grubb is not leaving. He has an opportunity to elevate Jalen Milroe to becoming a complete quarterback.

Grubb also has several talented offensive pieces around him to develop into stars in the Southeastern Conference.
