Alabama has interviewed several candidates this week to replace offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, who accepted the same position with the Philadelphia Eagles last month.

Alabama’s hunt to replace former offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, who accepted the same position with the Philadelphia Eagles last month, is ongoing.

South Carolina assistant football coach Shawn Elliott, who interviewed for the position earlier this week, said in a statement Friday that he would be staying with the Gamecocks.

“It was a great honor to be considered for a coaching position at the University of Alabama, but I feel it’s in the best interest of me and my family to remain at South Carolina,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of success here over the past three years and I’m committed to being part of that continued success for many years. I’m proud to be a Gamecock.”

New Miami tight ends coach Mario Cristobal, who was fired as Florida International’s head coach in December and hired by the Hurricanes soon after, is reportedly in Tuscaloosa interviewing for the offensive line coaching vacancy.

Earlier in the week, UCF offensive line coach/recruiting coordinator Brent Key interviewed for the job, too, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Stay tuned for more.
