USA Academy hires former Alabama DL, Rudy Griffin

A unique and interesting Alabama private school will begin playing football in August and a former Alabama player has been added to their coaching staff.

Former Alabama defensive lineman, Rudy Griffin, announced he is accepting the defensive line coaching position at the USA Academy Wednesday.

Griffin was previously the defensive coordinator at Hewitt-Trussville High School for five years before moving up to the college ranks as a defensive line coach for East Central Community College in Decatur, Mississippi for a year. He played for Alabama from 2003 to 2005. The Georgia native said he feels this opportunity is a great fit for him and his family.
