Report: Another Alabama staffer, elite recruiter, expected to leave for NFL job
The Alabama Crimson Tide have had a ton of turnover on their coaching staff this offseason, and it doesn’t appear to be over yet.
Now, they’re losing yet another assistant on the offensive side of the ball, according to an AL.com report.
Per reporter Matt Zenitz, Alabama RB coach Joe Pannunzio is expected to move back to the NFL ranks, rejoining the Philadelphia Eagles for the 2019 season:
Joe Pannunzio, who was Alabama's running backs coach last season, is expected to leave for a new job in the near future and it's likely he ends up back with the Philadelphia Eagles, per sources https://t.co/x3Hy2waUDi

Prior to leaving for the NFL, Pannunzio was the fourth-highest rated recruiter in the SEC in the 2019 cycle, per 247Sports (he has since been removed from the list).
At least he left the Tide with an elite 2019 class, which he played a big part in signing. Who the Tide hire next remains to be seen.
