The 18th annual event, which also includes South Alabama coach Joey Jones, Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage, is nearing a sell-out.

Nussmeier is excited about his first season at Alabama, especially when talk turns to the Crimson Tide's offensive line.


Nussmeier and the other new offensive coordinator in the state, Auburn's Scot Loeffler, will be in Mobile tonight as they are among the guest speakers at the 18th annual DEXImaging L'Arche Football Preview Dinner at the Mitchell Center.

LSU head coach Les Miles is the keynote speaker for the event, which gets under way at with a silent auction beginning at 6 p.m.

This blog noted yesterday that Nick Saban almost never lets his assistants speak with media outside of mandated access at events such as the SEC Championship Game and BCS Bowls. So Nussmeier's appearance tonight--plus his interview yesterday--is extraordinarily rare.

Proceeds from tonight's event benefit L'Arche Mobile, an assisted living community in which people with mental disabilities reside with non-disabled people in permanent homes.

We hope to see you there.
