St. Louis Rams running backs coach Sylvester Croom has interviewed for a position on the Alabama coaching staff.
Croom is considered to be a candidate to replace former wide receivers coach Curt Cignetti who left Alabama to take the head coaching position at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Croom has never been a wide receivers coach and it is uncertain if Nick Saban will give Croom the wide receivers coach “tag” if hired.
As Saban has done in the past (on select occasions), Croom could be given the title of “assistant” while a current assistant coach is moved into the role of receivers coach.
Louisville quarterbacks coach Mike Groh is also in contention for the coaching vacancy at Alabama.
Groh was at Alabama in 2009 as a graduate assistant and worked with the receivers.
Groh is most recognized for being an assistant coach at Virginia for eight years, three of which were served as offensive coordinator.
Groh’s father, current Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Al Groh, is most noted in the college ranks for his many years (2001-09) as the head coach of the Virginia Cavaliers.
