Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier is leaving the Crimson Tide to take the same position with the Michigan Wolverines. CBS Sports’ Bruce Feldman reports that Nussmeier will receive a significant raise, making him one of the top-five highest paid coordinators in college football.

Nussmeier spent the past two seasons in Tuscaloosa, where in 2012 he guided the Tide to school records for touchdowns, total offense and total points. In 2013, Alabama ranked No. 17 nationally in scoring average.

Prior to his time at Alabama, Nussmeier had coaching stints with Washington, Michigan State and the St. Louis Rams. He is well-regarded for developing quarterbacks, having worked with the likes of AJ McCarron, Drew Stanton and Jake Locker. At Michigan, Nussmeier will attempt to turn quarterback Devin Gardner, who has one year of eligibility remaining, into his latest NFL prospect.

As for Alabama, Nick Saban must now find his third offensive coordinator in four seasons. Feldman reports one name that may be brought up during the search process.

A long offseason just got even longer for Tide Nation.
