Unbelievable: Alabama has taken a big risk for signing a great star, that can lead to dist…..

The former Alabama coach has joined the Shane Beamer’s South Carolina program as an offensive analyst, offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains confirmed on Wednesday.

Shula was with the staff on Tuesday morning for the first day of spring practice.

“In this business, you’re always looking to bring in knowledge, guys that can help you,” Loggains said, per 247 Sports. “Mike is a guy I worked against a long time and coach Beamer had known as well. Got a ton of respect for him as an offensive mind and quarterback guy, so we had a chance to hire somebody and that’s why we brought him (on staff). … From a resume standpoint, character standpoint, person standpoint, he makes us better.”

Shula coached in Tuscaloosa from 2003-06 and finished 26-23 before Nick Saban took over. Before and after his stint at Alabama, Shula has been very much an NFL guy. He coached quarterbacks in Jacksonville, Carolina and Denver. He was also the offensive coordinator for the Panthers from 2013-17 and offensive coordinator for the New York Giants from 2018-19.

Shula is coming off two seasons with the Buffalo Bills as a senior offensive assistant.
