0 Comments

Two members of Alabama’s offense are no longer associated with the program. According to a report from BamaOnline.com, running back Altee Tenpenny and tight end Malcolm Faciane are no longer a part of the program, nor are either expected to be on the roster in 2015.

The reasons for the players no longer being associated with the team are unknown. Whether these are decisions by the players or by the coaching staff is unknown.

Neither player had an impact on Alabama’s offense since arriving on campus (Tenpenny in 2013 and Faciane in 2011), and it was not likely either would have had a significant role with the team in the fall either. Tenpenny would have been lost in the deep pool of running back talent at Alabama and Faciane has not managed to break into a role yet.
