Alabama recently hired Blount High School Coach Kelvin Sigler. Sigler resigned as the Leopards’ head coach yesterday, and he is said to be joining the Alabama staff. Siglier, of course, played at Alabama, and I’m sure it’s a dream come true to coach for the Tide and learn under Nick Saban. It is unclear, however, what exactly his role will be with Alabama at the moment. [AL.com]
The Arkansas pre-spring depth chart lists – finally – Knile Davis as the No. 1 running back on the squad with the first string. However, with the addition of Davis to the running game, Arkansas will have Dennis Johnson, Davis and Ronnie Wingo, Jr. on the depth chart. That is probably the deepest running back group, aside from LSU, in the SEC. This team should have the opportunity to be great this coming season. [Arkansas Sports 360]
Florida tight end AC Leonard is still suspended by head coach Will Muschamp for his recent arrest, but he attended the Florida Pro Day yesterday. Leonard, of course, was arrested for misdemeanor count of battery. He is banned from organized team activities to include off-season conditioning and spring practices that begin Wednesday.

Georgia still insists it does not have a discipline problem. This off-season, Georgia has had two (or three) players arrested. Sanders Commings and Brandon Smith were both arrested from next year’s team, and former tight end Orson Charles was arrested for DUI. The Georgia AD holds the coaches accountable for the players and himself for the coaches. [AJC]
South Carolina will be trying to fill the void of Melvin Ingram this coming season, and it starts in spring practice. Ingram is, no doubt, the biggest off-season loss for the Gamecocks; however, they have Devin Taylor and Jadeveon Clowney ready to step up and lead this defense at end. Hopefully for the Gamecock faithful, those two will be ready to step up. [Post and Courier]
