Saban Opens Up, Talks About Miles, Shows Some Personality

Nick Saban isn’t known for being Mr. Personality.  And he doesn’t have the reputation for being the life of the party.  That okay, the guy’s a pretty good football coach, in case you haven’t noticed.

But yesterday he was in an upbeat mood and gave the Alabama a media a few more soundbites — and even a zinger — more than usual.  Below are a few of his more interesting quotes.


On sitting next to Les Miles at the Heisman Trophy ceremony: “We’ve done several other things together.  I have a lot of respect and admiration for what he’s done and who he is.  We talk on occasion about SEC issues and problems and college football in general. … I didn’t mind sitting by him.  I think it was good.  I showed him my phone and showed him how many calls I was getting from Louisiana people who were blowing my phone up.  He thought it was funny, I thought it was funny, and (then I) changed numbers on Monday.”


On the face that the media hadn’t noticed the absence of receivers Ronald Carswell and Michael Bowman: “You guys are slipping, because it’s been a long time that Carswell and Bowman have not been out there.  They’ve been suspended for a long time. … That just shows where you guys put all your time.  Somebody’s got to tweet it before you realize it, and you’re in practice every day.  I’m glad I’m not your editor or… we would be bah-humbugging you right now.”


Finally, Saban also addressed his decision to search for a new offensive coordinator after the BCS title game: “I don’t think you can recruit, get ready for a game, practice for a game and try to be interviewing people at the same time.  Something’s going to get sort of left out.  First of all, I’d like to see who’s interested and who’s available out there and kind of go from there, but our focus right now is the game.”
