Tennessee Vols running backs coach Jay Graham could be on the move in the near future.
Graham, who played at Tennessee under Phillip Fulmer, is reportedly an option to become the new running backs coach at Alabama.
A couple of coaches to keep an eye on for vacant Alabama offensive assistant jobs are Jay Graham and Jay Boulware. No final decisions have been made, but both are under consideration.

Nick Saban needs a new running backs coach after Charles Huff was recently named the head coach at Marshall.
It makes sense that Graham is looking around. Tennessee doesn’t currently have a coach. And whoever is hired might bring their own running backs coach with them (though whoever it is would be wise to try to keep Graham on staff).
Graham returned to Tennessee after the 2019 season to join Jeremy Pruitt’s staff (the two worked together at Florida State in 2013). The former UT standout also coached at Tennessee in 2012 under Derek Dooley and served as a graduate assistant in 2005 under Fulmer.
