Alabama is still looking to replace Steve Sarkisian as offensive coordinator, and four candidates have emerged to fill the role.

New England Patriots tight end Brian Daboll is expected to interview for the position, and former Houston Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey is also a “strong candidate” for the job, according to Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.

Mike Locksley is already on Alabama’s staff, and he is also in the mix for the offensive coordinator position. According the Feldman, UCLA offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is a candidate.

Daboll was a graduate assistant under Nick Saban at Michigan State, and Godsey is close with Alabama offensive line coach Brent Key. Locksley was an offensive analyst with Sarkisian at Alabama last year before being promoted during the offseason. Alabama has lost four offensive assistants this year, including Sarkisian, Lane Kiffin, former offensive line coach Mario Cristobal (Oregon) and wide receivers coach Billy Napier (Arizona State).
