Former Kansas City Chiefs fullback Tim Castille has now joined Nick Saban’s staff as a graduate assistant coach this fall, a move that extends his future in football after he’s apparently decided that his playing days are over.
Castille entered the NFL in 2007 after going undrafted and signing with the Arizona Cardinals. He remained with them until 2009, when he signed with the Chiefs and remained there for two seasons in Kansas City.
Don Kausler Jr. of the BIrmingham News writes, “Tim Castille, a former Alabama fullback (2003-06), is back at his alma mater after three seasons in the NFL. He is the son of former Alabama All-American Jeremiah Castille, who went on to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Denver Broncos.”
Castille had 19 carries for 58 yards and 0 touchdowns for the Chiefs. He also caught another 18 passes for 91 yards and 1 touchdown in his career.
