Sources: Alabama is expected to hire Virginia Tech wide receivers coach Holmon Wiggins for the same position. Wiggins also had been in the mix for a coordinator role at Temple. I'm hearing Virginia Tech could target Jafar Williams, most recently Maryland's running backs coach, as Wiggins' replacement. Wiggins has coached receivers on Justin Fuente's staffs at both Virginia Tech and Memphis.
