Tyler Siskey, Alabama’s new Associate Director of Player Personnel, didn’t win the game for Alabama, but he’s taking the brunt end of Rebels’ fans’ anger on social media.
Related: Alabama made a statement Saturday
Siskey, who came to Alabama from Ole Miss this spring, was shown during the game in the press box with binoculars, and ESPN’s Todd Blackledge said he had been ‘very involved’ all week in helping the Alabama defense prepare for the Rebels’ offense.
Ole Miss fans took to Twitter to take out their frustration on Siskey.
Update: Saban was asked about Siskey’s role today, via AL.com.
Saban said he didn’t help with the coaching and was in the same position he’s always been in. There’s no rule against what he was doing, Saban said.

I can’t help but feel betrayed when ESPN shows former OM signal caller @tylersiskey w/ binoculars for Bama. Can’t imagine how Freeze feels.

@tylersiskey you are a joke. If that’s how you want to do things then Bama is the best place for you. Hate you were ever a Rebel

@tylersiskey Simply a lack of accountability and character. You betrayed the rules of the game. What respect anyone had for you is gone.
