Mike Groh to the NFL, Billy Napier to Alabama

Just days after Alabama replaced Jeff Stoutland with Mario Cristobal, the sought-after Crimson Tide coaching staff has once again undergone a transformation.

Alabama wide receivers coach Mike Groh, who was recently named the 2013 Recruiter of the Year by and, has accepted a coaching position with the Chicago Bears of the NFL.

To counter the move by Groh, Alabama will reportedly hire Florida State tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator Billy Napier to fill the vacancy.

Prior to his arrival at Florida State, Napier served as the assistant head coach/quarterbacks coach under Jim McElwain at Colorado State.

In respect to Alabama, Napier will actually be making his return to the Crimson Tide fold. During the 2011 calendar year, Napier served as an offensive quality control assistant on the 'Bama staff under Jim McElwain.

Napier, 32, has been in the coaching profession since 2003 where he initially served as a graduate assistant at Clemson.
