The Alabama Crimson Tide have their new offensive coordinator.

Rees had emerged as Alabama’s No. 1 target earlier in the week, and a deal looked inevitable. He will replace Bill O’Brien, who returned to the NFL as offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots.
The 30-year-old Rees, a former Notre Dame quarterback, served as the offensive coordinator for the Fighting Irish for the past three seasons. The school valued him highly enough that it was considered a big deal when he turned down the chance to follow Brian Kelly to LSU last offseason.
