Alabama football analyst Johnathan Galante has left the program, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Tuscaloosa News. 

The Athletic was first to report that Galante is expected to become Marshall's special teams coordinator. 

Galante has served as an analyst for Alabama since Feb. 2019. Before he joined the Crimson Tide, he worked as a graduate assistant at Virginia Tech, working with special teams from 2017 to 2019. 

Galante played football for the Hokies prior to his stint on the staff. 

At Marshall, he would join coach Charles Huff, who was hired to lead the program on Jan. 17, 2021.

Huff worked on Alabama's staff for two seasons in 2019 and 2020 as associated head coach/running backs. He also recruited and developed Saquon Barkley at Penn State. Then Huff took a job at Mississippi State in 2018 before joining the Crimson Tide, which is where he worked with Galante for two seasons. 

This offseason, in addition to a few coaching hires, Alabama has added former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger as an analyst. 

The Crimson Tide's spring game is set for April 16.
