Eventually, he got his first head coaching job with Florida International University (FIU) in 2007.

As the FIU's performance deteriorated during the 2012 season, Cristobal was sacked. However, Pete Garcia, who was the athletic director at that time, was chastised for overreacting and taking upon the grave decision of suspension. Nonetheless, he had his next venture ready. Cristobal became an offensive line coach at Alabama and helped the Crimson Tide win the national championship in 2015. As of now, he is the head coach at the University of Oregon.
