Woods had held his position with the Tigers the last three seasons. Before that, he was wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Arkansas State for a season.
He was also an offensive quality control assistant at Auburn from 2009-11. He worked with Tennessee’s wide receivers as a graduate assistant in 2008.
A Starkville, Miss. native, Woods played for the Volunteers from 2003-07. Alabama-Birmingham will resume playing football in 2017 under coach Bill Clark.
He led the perennially struggling Blazers to a remarkable 6-6 record in his inaugural campaign last year, their first non-losing season since 2004. The program, however, was abruptly shut down early last December before being reinstated in June.
