Iowa State’s special teams coordinator from the 2018 football season is heading to the SEC.
Joe Houston, who has been on Matt Campbell’s staff in some capacity for the last four years, has accepted a similar role on Nick Saban’s staff at Alabama. Houston announced the move Wednesday morning on Twitter.

Bruce Feldman from The Athletic first reported this news last week.
Prior to 2018, Houston was a “quality control” coach on Iowa State’s staff.
As of now, Houston’s replacement has not been named.
