Alabama graduate assistant takes on-field coaching role at James Madison
The Alabama Crimson Tide are no strangers to losing assistants to bigger and better positions on other staffs.
Coach Nick Saban has built a dynasty in Tuscaloosa, and that leads to other schools trying to mimic his success by poaching his assistants for bigger roles.
On Tuesday, Alabama graduate assistant Tino Sunseri announced via Twitter that he was leaving Tuscaloosa to take a job as the QB coach at FCS powerhouse James Madison:
I would like to thank Coach Saban for allowing me to be apart of the Alabama Family for the past two years. Truly has been an unbelievable ride. I will forever be thankful.

You can’t blame Sunseri for going to an on-field coaching role after serving as a graduate assistant for the past 2 years on Alabama’s staff. Perhaps he’ll find his way back to Tuscaloosa someday.
After all, his father, Sal, is the Crimson Tide’s outside linebackers coach!
