Former NFL linebacker and Alabama All-American Rolando McClain, who was arrested three times over the course of 17 months, has gone back to school
at the University of Alabama in an attempt to turn his troubled life around.
“I know a lot of people get disappointed in Rolando McClain and a lot of the things he’s struggled with,” said Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban, during a speaking engagement in Athens, Tenn. “But he’s with us now.”

run down of his mishaps...
McClain, 23, retired from the NFL last month after he was arrested in his hometown of Decatur, Ala., for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He reportedly shouted, “F#@k the police!”
His arrest occurred just 10 days after he signed a one-year contract with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens — in what was meant to be a second chance to make it in the NFL.
His serial arrests, one of which occurred after he allegedly threatened to kill a man and fired a gun near his head, led the Oakland Raiders to release him last April.
