Kevin Garver enters his third season with the Cardinals and third year in the NFL after joining the team as an offensive assistant on 2/5/13. He assists Daryl Drake in coaching the Cardinals wide receivers.

In 2013, the Cardinals offense totaled 379 points, tied for the fifth-best single season total in franchise history while also collecting 5,542 net yards of offense, also good for fifth in team annals.

Garver joined the Cardinals in 2013 after spending the previous 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, 2011-12).

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.

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

In 2012, 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 a master’s degree in Marketing in 2012. Garver and his wife, Julie, have a son, Jackson and daughter, Savannah.
