(WUSA 9) -- It looks like D.J. Durkin has found a new home in college football. According to a report in AL.com, the former Maryland head coach is "helping Alabama this past week in a consultant-like capacity."

Durkin was fired in late October by University of Maryland President Wallace Loh, just one day after the Maryland Board of Regents recommended Durkin's reinstatement.

The former head coach at Maryland was placed on administrative leave in August, after allegations that the football program was toxic.

These allegations followed the death of Jordan McNair, who collapsed during an offseason workout.

Durkin had been off the radar since his firing, with the exception of appearing at at Catholic University basketball game where Maryland head basketball coach Mark Turgeon's son, Will, is a freshman on the team.
