Springer Handles Bama Equipment
When the Alabama football team makes its way to the locker room for games on fall Saturdays, Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban was always flanked by a highway patrolman and by Bama Equipment Director Tank Conerly. Last year, Conerly--one of the most admired men in his profession--announced his retirement.
Alabama's new athletics equipment director is Jeff Springer, who comes to Tuscaloosa after having served four years in that position at Louisiana Tech.
Springer is a familiar face to Saban. Springer served as assistant equipment manager at LSU from 2003-05, when Saban was head coach of the Fighting Tigers.
Springer also served as equipment manager at The Citadel in 2006-07.
He interned with the Miami Dolphins, Tulane, and LSU. The Slidell, La., native earned his degree from LSU in 2001.
