He was on the coaching staffs at Alabama and UCLA and served as scout, player-personnel executive and general manager with the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens. Folks in Alabama probably know him well as a color commentator for the Crimson Tide Sports Network, or, as Executive Director of the Senior Bowl.
