Alabama: Saban talks football, assistants, SEC

Alabama Crimson Tide football coach Nick Saban spoke with the media prior to Fan Day. The Alabama coach talked about his assistants, why the SEC has dominated in recent years and the status of football operations at Alabama.

Saban praised the entire staff and singled explained his coordinators Kirby Smart and Jim McElwain function well in their leadership roles on the staff.

Saban said the SEC has succeeded in recent years because of “great schools that have great traditions, and in recent years that there have been a lot of outstanding coaches who have done a really good job of developing strong programs.”
