Sources have also told FootballScoop that Marynowitz holds an offer to join super agent Jimmy Sexton’s staff that he is also weighing.
Marynowitz holds a key off-the-field role for the Crimson Tide. As associate AD for football, he serves as a point person between the player personnel and football operations departments while also serving as the football program’s liaison with the athletic administration.
Marynowitz is in his second stint with the Crimson Tide. He joined the program in December 2008 as director of player personnel, helping ramp up the dynasty that continues to this day.
Marynowitz previously worked in the personnel departments of the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles. He was Philadelphia’s vice president of player personnel before returning to Tuscaloosa.
Alabama has already suffered major staff attrition in the wake of its fifth championship run under head coach Nick Saban. Defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt left to become the head coach at Tennessee, and defensive backs coach Derrick Ansley has taken the defensive coordinator job at Colorado State.
