"We're exceptionally proud to have Jay join the Alabama coaching staff this year," Pate said. "His playing and coaching resume speaks for itself, but he is also a tremendous person of character with outstanding leadership qualities. He bleeds Crimson and will be a big asset for our program on and off the court."
