A man who served for 25 years in the athletic department of the University of Alabama has found a new home in Marshall County.

Tank Conerly retired from his position of equipment manager at Alabama last year.

Now Conerly will serve as the City of Guntersville's Parks and Recreation Director.

Conerly said he will always enjoy the great players who were also good people, like Derrick Thomas and Shaun Alexander.

Conerly witnessed George Teague take the ball away from Miami in the 1993 Sugar Bowl, his first championship game.

He said of all the great players and coaches he's seen, he has great admiration for the coach today, Nick Saban, and his work ethic.

"He doesn't like any joking around.  When it's time to work, it is time to work.  And when it's not work time it's still time to be serious about it.  I just feel with the way that he handles things I just can't imagine us losing to Notre Dame."
