Alabama head football coach Nick Saban announced the addition of Drew Svoboda to the Crimson Tide staff on Monday as the special teams coordinator and tight ends coach.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to add Drew Svoboda to our staff to coordinate special teams and coach the tight ends,” Saban said in a release. “He is a bright young football coach who has been successful at every stop of his coaching career. He does an excellent job in terms of teaching the players, and he is someone we believe will be a tremendous asset on the recruiting trail. We are happy to welcome his wife Kristi and their children Austyn and Jack to the Crimson Tide program.”
Svoboda arrives at the Capstone after three years coaching special teams at Rice and one spring as the special teams coordinator at Memphis. He also spent one year as the running backs coach (2018) for the Owls and two years tutoring the fullbacks (2019-20). Prior to his time in college, Svoboda was a highly successful head coach at Klein Collins High School in Spring, Texas.
