Murray State head football coach Chris Hatcher announced the hiring of former Alabama standout linebacker Freddie Roach as the new defensive line coach for the Racers.
Roach comes to MSU after spending the 2011 season as the defensive line coach at East Mississippi Community College. He helped the Lions to a perfect 12-0 record and the National Junior College Athletic Association national championship.
“Freddie brings a wealth of championship experience to our staff,” said Hatcher. “He has been successful at all levels of his career and I expect him to be a great fit to our coaching staff.”
Prior to his time at EMCC, Roach spent two seasons working as an assistant in the strength and conditioning depart at Alabama. He was a member of the Crimson Tide's 2009 BCS National Championship team.
