Alabama’s new Strength and Conditioning coach may be right down the street in a former Alabama champion

In losing Scott Cochran, Alabama is on its search for a new Director of Strength and Conditioning for its football program.

While a ton of big-named candidates are floating around in the rumor mill, there is one name that would make a seamless transition and keep the “Bama factor” intact.

Mike McCoy is an extension of Cochran, Nick Saban and Alabama football.

Once a three-star recruit from Brandon, Miss., McCoy signed his letter of intent to be a wide receiver for the Crimson Tide in 2006. He came at a time where Tide football was not popular; however, popularity did not matter to him.
