Kevin Garver enters his first season with the Cardinals and first year in the NFL after being hired as an offensive assistant on 2/5/13.

Garver joins the Cardinals after spending the last six years working for the University of Alabama football program under head coach Nick Saban, where he was part of a staff that won three national championships in four years (2009, 2011, and 2012).

He began working with the Crimson Tide football team as a student assistant in February, 2007 after the arrival of Saban and spent three seasons in that role. In 2008, the Tide went undefeated during the regular season and played in the SEC Championship Game, and the following season they went 14-0 and won the BCS National Championship Game.

He then spent the next two seasons as a graduate assistant, helping the Tide win their second BCS National Championship Game in 2011.

Last season, Garver moved into an offensive analyst position and helped Alabama become the first team since Nebraska in 1994-95 to win back-to-back consensus national championships. They ranked second in the SEC and 11th in the country with 38.7 points per game, and quarterback A.J. McCarron led the nation with a 175.3 pass efficiency rating.

He graduated from Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing in 2009 and then earned his master’s degree in Marketing in 2012. Garver and his wife, Julie, have one son, Jackson.
