Anonymous coach feels Alabama will face defensive challenges without Nick Saban.

A new era has begun in Tuscaloosa as Alabama prepares to take the field for the first time since 2007 without longtime head coach Nick Saban.

This has left many across the college football landscape speculating how the Tide will fare in 2024 without their defensive mastermind at the helm.

An anonymous coach recently shared his thoughts with Lindy’s Sports for their preseason magazine.

“The biggest change people don’t understand is Alabama, since 2007, has had maybe the best defensive mind in the history of college football,” the coach said. “Occasionally, somebody might get him, but he was so far ahead of taking away what people did best on offense on a weekly basis and was willing to tweak things to stop what you do best.”

Alabama’s defense is now under the direction of new defensive coordinator Kane Wommack with Kalen DeBoer expected to be more involved on the offensive side of the football than Saban was.

The Tide also managed to retain their strong linebacker tandem in Deontae Lawson and Jihaad Campbell to spearhead their defense along with a host and mix of talented veteran and young defensive linemen. They also returned veteran defensive back, Malachi Moore, and brought in defensive transfers in Domani Jackson and Keon Sabb to help secure their secondary.
