Report: Alabama expected to hire new WR coach from ACC squad
The Alabama Crimson Tide had a lot of staff turnover the past couple of weeks, but now Nick Saban is starting to rebuild and make new hires.
On Tuesday night, it was reported that he found a new WR coach to replace Josh Gattis, and this new coach comes from the ACC.
Per ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg, the Crimson Tide are expected to add Virginia Tech WR coach Holmon Wiggins to the staff:
Sources: Alabama is expected to hire Virginia Tech wide receivers coach Holmon Wiggins for the same position. Wiggins also had been in the mix for a coordinator role at Temple. I'm hearing Virginia Tech could target Jafar Williams, most recently… https://t.co/AgjLSaFRQO

Wiggins followed Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente from Memphis, and according to Rittenberg, he was also in the mix for a coordinator job.
Now, he’s reportedly off to Tuscaloosa, though, where he’ll coach a position group that includes talented players like Jerry Jeudy, DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle.
