There is horrible news out of Alabama. 


While people were expecting to hear Nick Saban talk about the team's recent victory over No. 3 Florida State on Saturday during a press conference, the Alabama head coach gave some sad news about his coaching staff. 


Meiko Locksley, son of co-offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, was shot and killed. 

​​Just tragic. 


“On another note, Mike Locksley, our receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator, his son was killed. I just want everyone to understand that our thoughts and prayers go out to Mike and his family." Saban said during his press conference. "We will do everything we can to support him during this time.”


Meiko, who was just 25 years old, was found with gun shot wounds in Washington D.C. before he was transported to the University of Maryland Shock and Trauma Center where he later passed away. 

Saban did not give any further details about the incident, or about Locksley's participation with the team for the upcoming weeks. 


Even though Locksley is not currently with the team, the thoughts and prayers of the entire team must be going out to their co-offensive coordinator.
