Alabama football lost an associate strength coach to the National Football League, but he chose to pen a heartfelt goodbye to Crimson Tide fans on social media.

Paul Constantine came with David Ballou from Indiana University to the University of Alabama early in 2020.

He worked under Nick Saban, helping the Crimson Tide to an undefeated College Football Playoff National Championship in 2020 and three Southeastern Conference Championships (2020-21, 2023). Constantine built a special relationship with players and coaches as he motivated guys and made sure athletes stayed at peak strength and conditioning. He encouraged players on the field, in the locker room, and in the weight room. Constantine now takes his family to the Atlanta Falcons as a strength coach.

He is excited for a new opportunity, but he wanted Alabama fans to know on Instagram how much he valued the program.

Coach Ballou was retained as the Director of Sports Performance for the Tide.

It will be good to see how Constantine performs at the next level.
