Alabama defensive line coach Chris Rumph is heading to Texas to join Charlie Strong’s staff, first reported by Alabama’s 247Sports site.

Rumph joined Alabama in 2011 from Clemson, and he was a part of two national championships. Alabama’s defensive line has been strong against the run the last three years, and they have finished first in run defense the last three seasons.

Rumph makes the second assistant coach to leave for another program. Alabama OC Doug Nussmeier left for Michigan recently, and Nick Saban hired Lane Kiffin to replace him.
