Ohio State wasn’t the only team to lose its newly hired offensive coordinator on Friday.
Alabama lost its new offensive coordinator less than one month after hiring him when the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks chose Ryan Grubb to be their new offensive coordinator on Friday, according to numerous reports.

Much like Bill O’Brien, who left Ohio State after just three weeks to become Boston College’s head coach on Friday, the quick job change means Grubb will be returning to the area he came from, as he spent the last two years in Seattle as Washington’s offensive coordinator. Grubb followed Kalen DeBoer from Washington to Alabama when DeBoer was hired in January as Nick Saban’s replacement in Tuscaloosa.
Grubb was considered to be one of the top offensive coordinators in college football after leading a pair of offenses at Washington that ranked in the top 12 of the FBS nationally in total offense. He has never previously worked in the NFL.
