Rolando McClain, Glen Coffee and 13 current Alabama football players graduating Saturday
Updated 5:13 PM; Posted 5:13 PM


As finals wind down, graduation day is Saturday at the University of Alabama.

A group of 13 current Crimson Tide football players and five former team members will receive diplomas following the fall semester.

The big names in the group are two ex-players who returned for their degrees.

Rolando McClain, the No. 8 pick in the 2010 draft, left school a year early to pursue the NFL. He was suspended indefinitely last December after a failed drug test having last played in 2015 with the Dallas Cowboys.

Glen Coffee will also get his diploma after leaving Alabama in 2008 for the NFL. He retired in 2010 and enlisted in the Army in 2013. After attempting an NFL comeback in the spring, Coffee returned to Alabama as a graduate assistant with the football program. He was spotted several times working with the running backs in practice this fall.

Alabama already had 12 graduates on the roster this fall, pushing the total for the Sugar Bowl to 25. Kicker Andy Pappanastos will get his Master's degree on Saturday.
