TUSCALOOSA, Ala. --- University of Alabama head football coach Mike Shula announced Tuesday that defensive coordinator Joe Kines has been given the additional responsibility as assistant head coach.

"I have had a long professional relationship with coach Kines," Shula said "and certainly respect his abilities.  Joe has been around the college game for a long time and he will be a valuable asset and sounding board for me.  I appreciate him taking on these additional responsibilities."

He also serves as defensive coordinator and linebacker coach.

Kines, who joined the Tide in January, also worked at Alabama from 1985-86 when Shula was a Bama quarterback.
