Jalen Milroe is on his third quarterback coach and offensive coordinator in four seasons at the University of Alabama.

He arrived as a four-star from Tompkins High School (Katy, Texas) in 2021 recruiting class.

Bill O’Brien served as his position coach in 2021 and 2022 while Tommy Rees ran the offense and coached quarterbacks in 2023. Milroe earned second-team All-Southeastern Conference honors last year, propelling the Crimson Tide to an SEC Championship and a College Football Playoff berth. He became a permanent team captain and co-created an acronym, “Let All Naysayers Know,” or LANK that became the team’s battle cry for success. Milroe had 2,834 passing yards and 35 total touchdowns — 23 passing, 12 rushing — as a first-year starter.

He returns as an experienced leader, but Milroe has competition in the quarterback room — including from a transfer

Nick Sheridan, Alabama’s new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, sees a high upside in Milroe.

The 35-year-old former quarterback discussed his thoughts about Milroe on The Next Round Show. Sheridan played at the University of Michigan for five years (2006-10), helping the program to three bowl games. He understands the coaching change Milroe is going through because he endured it. Sheridan had Lloyd Carr coaching him in 2006 and 2007, but the Wolverines encountered a transition in 2008 as Rich Rodriguez became the new head coach.

Sheridan has been around quarterbacks with high upsides, including Joshua Dobbs (Tennessee) and Michael Penix (Indiana, Washington). He sees Milroe with a high upside.
