Alabama Offensive Coordinator Hot Board ***1/18 Update***

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Nick Saban is set to bring in a familiar face to his coaching staff as sources have told BamaInsider.com Alabama will hire Stevon Moore as a defensive analyst.

Moore, who played for the Cleveland Browns under Saban and current New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, most recently served as the defensive backs coach at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College from 2002-17. While at MGCCC, Moore coached former Alabama defensive tackle Terrence Cody as well as current Alabama players defensive end Isaiah Buggs and cornerback Saivion Smith.

A former defensive back at Ole Miss, Moore was drafted by the New York Jets in the seventh round of the 1989 NFL Draft. He played his first two seasons in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins (1990-91) before playing for Belichick and Saban with the Browns. While Belichick served as the Browns head coach, Saban was Moore’s defensive coordinator from 1992-94. Moore remained with the organization through its move to Baltimore and retired from the Baltimore Ravens in 1999.

In 97 NFL starts, Moore intercepted 10 passes and had 555 tackles. He had 115 tackles in 1992 and had five picks in 1995. He won the Ed Block Courage Award in 1998.

After his playing days, Moore spent time as a part-time scout for the New England Patriots before joining MGCCC as a volunteer coach from 2000-01.
