A defensive backs guru, Golding guided the Roadrunners defense for two seasons, producing the FBS's No. 7 total defense in 2017 that allowed just 4.98 yards a play. Golding also has previous experience as a defensive coordinator at Southeastern Louisiana from 2012-13, his alma mater Delta State from 2010-11 and Tusculum from 2008-09.

Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt accepted the Tennessee head coaching job December 7, though he will remain with Alabama through its College Football Playoff run.

Tide staff intern Wes Neighbors, whom Saban said has "worked with Jeremy all year long", worked with Alabama's inside linebackers while outside linebackers coach Tosh Lupoi was "overseeing it".

UT- San Antonio's defensive coordinator Pete Golding will join the staff in 2018 as the 10th assistant coach.

Prior to joining UTSA, Golding spent two years as safeties coach at Southern Miss, where he helped the Golden Eagles improve to 9-5 in 2015 and win Conference USA's Western Division.

Earlier this month, defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt accepted the head coaching job at Tennessee. Pruitt is expected to return to Tuscaloosa on Sunday, the final day before the recruiting dead period officially begins Monday.

Nick Saban on early signing period: "I didn't like it when we did it".

Alabama will have two more players practicing on Saturday.

"Certainly happy for the opportunity that he has", Saban said. He's done a wonderful job for us and we'll do as much as we can to support him to be able to do what he needs to do here to help our players and our team.

"We're all kind of filling in where we can", Saban said. "There's not enough time in the day".

The 6-foot-1 Smith, a former 2016 signee with LSU, is rated the nation's top JUCO cornerback after transferring from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
