University Of Alabama’s Steve Sarkisian Recovering Following Heart Surgery

After undergoing heart surgery last week, University of Alabama’s offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is expected to make a full recovery. This according to the university in a statement they issued on Tuesday.

The statement issued by the school noted that it was discovered that Sarkisian needed heart surgery to correct a cardiovascular anomaly. “During Coach Sarkisian’s physical last week, it was determined that he needed a procedure to correct a congenital cardiovascular anomaly before it became an issue,” the post read. “Coach Sarkisian underwent a successful procedure July 2 in Birmingham. He is back home in Tuscaloosa and is expected to make a full recovery.”

The 46-year-old Sarkisian is in his second go around with the Crimson Tide, as he joined the program in 2016 as an offensive analyst, then served as the interim offensive coordinator. He went on to take the offensive coordinator position for the Atlanta Falcons for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. He returned to Tuscaloosa in 2019 to be the school’s offensive coordinator, which is a position he still holds today.

Last season, Sarkisian’s Alabama offense, ranked third in the country in passing yards per game, 56th in rushing yards per game, second in scoring offense, and sixth in total offense.
