CLEMSON - CUTigers first told its subscribers earlier today about an SEC school coming after a Clemson defensive assistant. Learn more about what's going on right here.

CUTigers first reported shortly before 10 AM Tuesday morning and SEC school had offered a Clemson defensive coach a job.

Turns out that coach was Clemson defensive ends coach Chris Rumph.

Rumph accepted the position and said his good-byes to the Clemson staff shortly after 12 o'clock Tuesday.

He is expected to be named Alabama's new defensive line coach within the week.
