      Mario Cristobal, an associate head coach at the University of Miami, has interviewed with Nick Saban for the open offensive line coaching job at Alabama.

      According to a report from 247Sports, Cristobal arrived in Tuscaloosa Thursday night and met with Saban today to discuss becoming an assistant on the Crimson Tide staff. The former Florida International coach joined Al Golden's Hurricanes' staff just last month.

      Cristobal, 42, was fired at FIU this year after spending six seasons as the Owls head coach.

      Saban has interviewed several candidates to replace Jeff Stoutland, who left Tuscaloosa to join Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles. South Carolina assistant Shawn Elliot recently withdrew his name from the pool of candidates, deciding to stay with Steve Spurrier and the Gamecocks.

      Other names reportedly in contention for the job is Atlanta Falcons assistant Pat Hill and Central Florida offensive line coach Brent Key.
