Owens, an alumnus of Alabama, has been the assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Crimson Tide since 2015, where he has won three national titles over the last five seasons.
While playing for Alabama as a walk-on from 2011-14, he earned himself a pair of national championships, giving him a total of five titles during his tenure with the Crimson Tide.
The Season was a challenge like we’ve never seen, but this staff just went to work. So proud of our players. To see what they pushed through was all the motivation we needed each day. Bringing back another championship to T-Town. #Bama pic.twitter.com/HCqeva71aI
