Kelvin Sigler, a former head coach at Blount High School in Mobile, Ala. who spent the 2012 season as a member of the University of Alabama football staff, enters his first season as the Huskies' cornerbacks coach.

A defensive back at Alabama from 1995-98, Sigler returned to his alma mater for the 2012 season as a defensive analyst for the national championship winning Crimson Tide. He went to Alabama after four seasons as head coach at Blount High School in Mobile, Ala., where he compiled a 27-18 record and led the Leopards to four straight playoff berths. In 2011, Blount went 10-2 and advanced to the second round of the Class 6A Playoffs in Sigler's final season as head coach to post the school's first 10-win season since 1998.

Prior to taking over as head coach at Blount High School, Sigler served as defensive coordinator at Bob Jones High School in Madison, Ala. from 2004-08, and as an assistant coach and head track and field coach at Greensboro (Ala.) High School from 2002-04. Seven of Sigler's high school defensive backs earned college football scholarships.

In four seasons as a defensive back at Alabama, Sigler made six career interceptions and led the team in tackles his junior season. He was selected as one of five permanent team captains in 1998.
