Doug Nussmeier To Become Alabama Offensive Coordinator, According To Reports

Now that Boise St. Broncos offensive coordinator Brent Pease has taken the same job with the Florida Gators and former Jacksonville Jaguars OC Dirk Koetter has joined the Atlanta Falcons, the next candidate on the Alabama Crimson Tide's list appears to be Doug Nussmeier of the Washington Huskies. He's expected to take the job in Tuscaloosa, reports the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta, though there's nothing official to point to as of yet.

Tom Dienhart is among those reporting the deal is all but done.

Nussmeier has been on Steve Sarkisian's staff since 2009, also serving as quarterbacks coach. Previously, he'd worked at Fresno State's OC and Michigan State's QB coach, in addition to some CFL and NFL gigs. As the quarterback of the Idaho Vandals, he was one of the most prolific dual-threat quarterbacks in college football history, piling up 10,000 career passing yards and another 1,000 on the ground.

Washington ranked No. 38 in offense in 2011, showing up at No. 117 in 2008, the year before Nussmeier took over.

Alabama Turning To Brian Schottenheimer, Doug Nussmeier, According To Reports

The Alabama Crimson Tide need an offensive coordinator to replace Jim McElwain, who headed from New Orleans to begin his new full-time gig as Colorado St. Rams head coach. Boise St. Broncos OC Brent Pease was believed to be the top candidate, but the Florida Gators scooped him up first. This happens when you don't leave yourself free time on a Monday night.

Among the reported candidates as of late was Jacksonville Jaguars OC and former Arizona State coach Dirk Koetter. Another NFL name joins the list: former New York Jets coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who's also a rumored Atlanta Falcons target. He was the Jets OC from 2006 to 2011, announcing he wouldn't be back for 2012 amid concerns about Mark Sanchez' long-term viability.

Another name, according to Mark Schlabach: Doug Nussmeier of the Washington Huskies. Which brings us to an interesting dichotomy in our list of candidates.

Koetter and Schottenheimer aren't known as revolutionary offensive minds, while Nussmeier and Pease have operated very un-Bama operations out there on the West Coast.
