ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) - Former first-round draft pick Rolando McClain is back at his alma mater now that his NFL career has ended.


Alabama coach Nick Saban said Tuesday at an Athens (Tenn.) Area Chamber of Commerce benefit dinner at Tennessee Wesleyan College that "(McClain's) gone back to school. He's with us now."


McClain, 23, won the Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker in 2009 while leading Alabama to a national title.


He played three seasons with the Oakland Raiders, who selected him with the eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft. McClain signed with the Baltimore Ravens in April, but he was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest shortly afterward, his third arrest since 2011.


Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said last month that McClain indicated he planned to retire.
