Alabama announces that Marshall will leave for Browns
By Josh Cooper
The University of Alabama released a statement Sunday announcing that Steve Marshall was leaving the Crimson Tide football program to take a job with the Cleveland Browns.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for Steve,” Alabama coach Nick Saban in the statement. “It’s a shame that it didn’t work out for him here, but I wish him well.”
Saban hired Marshall on Jan. 12 to join the Crimson Tide assistant coaching staff. Marshall had not been assigned a specific duty, though it was assumed he would have a role with the Alabama offensive line.
Marshall spent the 2006 season out of coaching after serving as an offensive line coach for the Houston Texans during 2004-05.
Before his stop with the Texans, Marshall served as offensive line coach with Colorado from 2000-2003 and as offensive coordinator with North Carolina from 1998-1999.
He also has coached at Texas A&M, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Murray State, Louisville and Marshall.
