Alabama Offensive Coordinator Ryan Grubb Leaving for the NFL

Friday was another wild day in the college football coaching carousel. A few hours after Bill O’Brien left Ohio State after a three-week stint to take the Boston College head coaching position, the Alabama Crimson Tide lost their newly hired offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb after just a few weeks on the job.

Unlike O’Brien, Grubb won’t be staying in the college ranks as he is reportedly accepting a position with the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League to be their offensive coordinator.

Grubb had followed new Alabama head coach Kalen Deboer from the University of Washington and the move to a similar role, albeit in a higher level of the sport, was seen as a major surprise.

The surprise move capped off a bizarre day across the college football landscape. After O’Brien abruptly left Ohio State, the Buckeyes immediately replaced him with UCLA head coach Chip Kelly in a surprising move down the coaching and financial ladder for the long-time spread offense guru.

College Football, folks.
