Nick Saban announces punishment for OL Hunter Brannon following DUI arrest
After returning home from a big win at Tennessee on Saturday night, Alabama coach Nick Saban had to deal with some bad news on Sunday morning.
That’s because redshirt freshman OL Hunter Brannon was arrested on suspicion of DUI, and the details didn’t look good.
During Saban’s Tuesday bye week press conference, he said the team has suspended Brannon and that he won’t dress for any games:
Nick Saban: We suspended Hunter Brannon from the team. He's not going to dress for any games right now.
Said he'll have some things to do behind the scenes (police ride around, community service, etc.)

Saban said it’ll be similar to how the team handled Mac Jones’s DUI arrest last year, and that Brannon will have some things he has to do internally to earn his way back.
Brannon has yet to play for the Tide, and now it appears as if his debut in crimson will have to wait a little longer.
