Coach DeBoer wrapped up his inaugural spring with the Crimson Tide, stepping into the shoes of the legendary Saban. Bryant-Denny Stadium welcomed 72,358 fans for the occasion, a testament to the enduring support for Alabama football. While Saban’s first A-Day scrimmage drew a then-record 92,138 attendees, DeBoer’s leadership brings promise after his success at Washington, where he guided the team to a national championship game in just his second year. Taking the reins of a program with six national championships under Saban’s 17-year tenure, DeBoer faces the challenge of maintaining Alabama’s prestigious legacy.
