Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is joining the Alabama Football staff after his NFL playing career
Former Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is continuing his football career. But it won’t be in the NFL.
After Clinton-Dix retired as a Packer earlier in the week, he’s set to take the next step and enter the coaching world. Per multiple reports, Clinton-Dix has joined Nick Saban’s Alabama football staff and will serve as a director of player development.
Clinton-Dix revealed that he’s ready to go into coaching while speaking with Packers’ reporters earlier in the week.
“That’s where my life is headed: into coaching,” Clinton-Dix said. “Helping these kids create great decision making and making the right choices as they get ready to further their career and head to the NFL and other avenues they want to endure after football is over with.”
The safety played three seasons at Alabama, helping the Crimson Tide win two national championships in that span.
He was drafted by Green Bay in the 2014 NFL draft and spent five years there before signing with the Bears in 2019. Clinton-Dix made a few more stops in the NFL cycle before officially retiring here in 2022.
Alabama failed to make the College Football Playoff this year and instead is taking on Kansas State in the Sugar Bowl down in New Orleans.
