Josh Gattis

The University of Alabama hired Josh Gattis in January of 2018 to coach the team’s wide receivers.

“Josh Gattis is a tremendous addition to our coaching staff,” Saban said. “He is a young and energetic coach who did a great job at Penn State and Vanderbilt. Josh is an outstanding recruiter who knows what he is doing in terms of coaching wide receivers and building relationships with the players. We are happy to welcome his wife Tesa and their son Jace to the Crimson Tide program.”

Gattis is known to be an elite recruiter and developer of receivers. While at Penn State, he helped the Nittany Lions signed four consecutive top 25 classes and was named the 2015 Big Ten Recruiter of the Year.

This isn’t Gattis’ first stint in the SEC, though, because he coached with James Franklin at Vanderbilt from 2012-2013, helping Jordan Matthews to have a spectacular career.

Prior to Vanderbilt, Gattis had stops at Western Michigan and North Carolina. As a player at Wake Forest, he was a two-time All-ACC performer at safety in 2005-2006.
