Alabama deputy athletic director Matt Self was arrested over the weekend in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and charged with third-degree domestic violence, according to multiple reports.
According to reports, law enforcement was called out after midnight and after an investigation, Self would be arrested. He was placed on a 24-hour domestic violence hold with a bond set at $300.
Multiple reports state that he was not listed in the inmate database Monday afternoon.
On Monday, UA released the following statement via an athletics department spokesperson:
“Alabama Athletics is aware of this incident. We take such matters seriously and will continue to gather more information to address this personnel matter.”
Self was also detained in Tuscaloosa in 2010, so this is not his first run-in with the law. He paid a fee and received a suspended 10-day jail sentence after entering a guilty plea to a misdemeanor DUI offense. At the time, he was working at the University of Alabama.
Self-entered private practice after earning a law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law in 2004. He began working for Alabama’s sports compliance office in 2008, originally acting as the main football-related compliance liaison. 2016 saw his promotion as department head of compliance.
After Jeff Purinton left to become the athletic director at Arkansas State, he was appointed to the position of football administrator in May 2021. Greg Byrne, the athletic director at Alabama who has been in that position since 2017, formerly served as the athletic director at Arizona. Self reports to Byrne.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
