TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- University of Alabama president Judy Bonner will recommend the hiring of Bill Battle as the athletic department's new athletics director, according to a university press release. 
Battle, a former player under coach Paul "Bear" Bryant who was the head coach at Tennessee during the 1970s, will replace Mal Moore, who stepped down Wednesday because of health issues.

Alabama's Board of Trustees will meet via conference call Friday at 10 a.m. to vote on the recommendation.
He doesn't look a day over 50.
