TUSCALOOSA, Ala.: Former Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage will be Alabama's football color analyst.
Crimson Tide Sports Marketing general manager Jim Carabin announced Monday that Savage will replace Ken Stabler in the fall.
Savage was senior vice president and general manager during four seasons with the Browns after nine years with the Baltimore Ravens.
Savage got a dress rehearsal when he handled analyst duties for Alabama's spring game.
The Mobile native spent three seasons as a graduate assistant for the Tide under coach Bill Curry and worked under offensive coordinator Homer Smith in 1988-89.
Stabler did not return to the booth after his arrest on a drunken-driving charge a year ago. He was found not guilty by a Robertsdale judge.
