Nick Saban Comment on Texas Tech’s Hiring of James Willis:
This is a great opportunity for James to become a defensive coordinator. We always want our assistants to advance professionally in terms of their careers and we are very happy for him. Although we hate to see him go, we wish James and his family the best at Texas Tech.
James did an outstanding job for us last season and I’m sure he will do the same for Tommy in his new role. We appreciate all of his hard work and dedication during his time at Alabama.
