George Godsey was fired by the Texans this offseason and now he could end up with Alabama.

Former Houston Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey is interviewing for Alabama’s offensive coordinator position, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports.

"Word is, another former Bill Belichick protege, former Houston Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey, has emerged as a strong candidate for the ‘Bama OC opening. Godsey is close with Tide offensive line coach Brent Key."

Godsey worked with the Texans from 2014-16 after coming over with head coach Bill O’Brien from the New England Patriots.

Alabama is of course looking for a new offensive coordinator after Lane Kiffin took over as Florida Atlantic’s head coach.

The plan was for Steve Sarkisian to take over as the Crimson Tide’s offensive coordinator, but he only took over the job for the National Championship after being hired by the Atlanta Falcons after they lost Kyle Shanahan to the San Francisco 49ers after their Super Bowl loss over a week ago.

With Bama once again looking for someone to run their offense, Goerge Godsey has a chance to make a name for himself if he gets the job down in Tuscaloosa.
