Alabama football staff member arrested for DUI for second time since being hired


Alabama assistant strength and conditioning coach Josh Chapman was arrested early Saturday morning for a DUI.

According to a report from, Chapman was booked into Tuscaloosa County Jail after being arrested Saturday morning. Chapman was held on a $1,000 bond. It is the second time Chapman has been arrested by Tuscaloosa police for a DUI offense. Chapman was arrested for DUI on Jan. 29, 2017. Chapman was hired to be a part of the Alabama coaching staff in 2016. It remains to be seen if there will be any jeopardy to Chapman’s job status following a second DUI.

Chapman was part of two national championship teams at Alabama under head coach Nick Saban (2010, 2012). He went on to be a fifth-round draft pick of the Indianapolis Colts and returned to the Crimson Tide to begin his coaching career after being waived by his only NFL team.
