Washington coach Kalen DeBoer closing in on Alabama job


Washington coach Kalen DeBoer is currently in negotiations for the position of the next head coach at Alabama, making him the leading candidate for the role, as per various reports. Since Nick Saban’s retirement, the Alabama coaching position has become highly sought after in both college and professional football circles. Despite numerous potential candidates from the NFL, it seems that Alabama has swiftly identified DeBoer as their preferred choice.

At 49 years old, DeBoer previously led Sioux Falls for five seasons, securing the NAIA national championship three times. He progressed through the NCAA assistant coaching ranks and later served as the head coach at Fresno State for two years. DeBoer has been with Washington for two years, inheriting a 4-8 team and achieving an impressive 11-2 record in his first season. In his second season, Washington reached a remarkable 14-1 record, with their only loss occurring against Michigan in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Given DeBoer’s track record, Alabama’s interest is understandable. Despite Washington being a strong program, Alabama can offer DeBoer greater financial incentives and a more favorable opportunity to contend for a national championship. Consequently, the coaching vacancy at Washington is now considered one of the premier opportunities in football.
