The Alabama Crimson Tide saw quite a​ purge from Nick Saban's coaching staff. With wide receivers coach ​Josh Gattis taking the Michigan offensive coordinator job, Saban needed a replacement.


It appears he found one.


According to FootballScoop, Alabama will hire Virginia Tech's Holmon Wiggins as their new receivers coach.​

Wiggins has spent the majority of his college coaching career working with the wide receiver position. Prior to his three-year stint with the Hokies, Wiggins spent four seasons with the Memphis Tigers (2012-15), where he was credited for the development​​ Anthony Miller, a second-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears.


Before his reputation as a wide receiver tutor, Wiggins was a running backs coach at Illinois State (2006-10) and Tulsa (2011). 

What Wiggins brings to Tuscaloosa is his recruiting skills. While at Virginia Tech, he successfully recruited four-star receivers Tre Turner and Tayvion Robinson.


Based off his resume, Wiggins is a wide receiver savantand will help Alabama bring in top prospects out of high school.
