Coaching rumors: Travis Jones a candidate to become Alabama’s defensive line coach

Travis Jones reportedly is a candidate to become Alabama’s defensive line coach.

On Thursday, AL.com’s Matt Zenitz reported that Jones, who worked as the Seattle Seahawks’ defensive line coach from 2013-16 and then as a senior defensive assistant for the team in 2017, is expected to interview soon for the position with the Crimson Tide.

Jones and the Seahawks parted ways in January. Before his time in the Pacific Northwest, Jones had experience working under Nick Saban during stints at LSU (2003-04) and with the Miami Dolphins (2005-07). Jones also was the New Orleans Saints’ assistant defensive line coach from 2008 to 2012.

Saban is looking to replace Karl Dunbar, who was hired by the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.

Alabama is coming off a victory against Georgia in the National Championship Game in January. The result marked the Crimson Tide’s fifth national title under Saban.
