I look forward to meeting the players and staff and getting to work on building a championship program. The first thing I want to do is establish a relationship with my team. If we want to maximize our capabilities as a team, there must be a level of trust and accountability. At the end of the day, I want us to be smart, tough and resilient competitors.” Stiff said in a release.
The Hoover High School alum spent time as the Director of Player Personal at the University of Tennessee and served as a recruiting and personnel assistant at the University of Alabama in 2017 a year in which the Crimson Tide claimed the College Football Playoff National Championship.
