Stoutland leaves Tide for the NFL

Alabama coach Nick Saban confirmed Friday that offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland was leaving for a job on the Philadelphia Eagles' staff.

"Coach Stoutland did an excellent job with our offensive line along with each and every responsibility he had while he was here at the University of Alabama. We appreciate all that he did in terms of his time and his dedication in contributing to the success we’ve had over the last two years. He’s an outstanding coach and he will do a great job with the Eagles. We wish him and his family the best," Saban said in a release.

Stoutland is the second member of the Alabama coaching staff to depart. Secondary coach Jeremy Pruitt left to be the Florida State defensive coordinator and was replaced by Greg Brown.
