After leaving the Alabama program in 2011, a return to the Crimson Tide could be quite real for Jim McElwain, following the end of his tenure at Florida. McElwain was the offensive coordinator during the time for Nick Saban's Crimson Tide (prior to leaving for the head job at Colorado State, and later the Gators) and it could be the position he is returning to in 2018, following the departure of ​offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to the NFL.
