USA Today reports that former Oklahoma Sooners defensive coordinator Mike Stoops is joining Alabama's coaching staff.

According to USA Today, Stoops will join the staff in an off-field position.

Stoops will reportedly join head coach Nick Saban's staff as an analyst or consultant, the paper reported.

Stoops was the defensive coordinator under brother and former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops from 1999-2003 before taking the Arizona head coaching job in 2004.

Stoops returned to the Sooners in 2012 but was fired in October 2018 by head coach Lincoln Riley, a day after OU lost to rival Texas 48-45 in the Red River Showdown.
