Phil Savage may have been a lousy NFL general manager—the former Browns GM traded up for Brady Quinn and replied to a fan email with “Go root for Buffalo-f#@* you,”—but he does have some pretty good Lane Kiffin goss.
Jim Harbaugh prefers Twitter as the space to hold court on matters he’s pissed off about; Nick Saban is old-fashioned—a presser with an eager reporter will do just fine.
Parkway High School (La.) coach David Feaster spoke very candidly about Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban during an interview on 104.5 ESPN on Wednesday, and he’s now paid a price for that honesty.
Monday, Alabama announced via a Nick Saban statement that new FAU head coach Lane Kiffin will not join the Crimson Tide on the sideline or in the booth as offensive coordinator for its upcoming rematch with Clemson in the national title game. Given the curious timing and Kiffin’s tendency to wear on his employers, a…
Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin will be the head coach at FAU next season, but he continued to serve as Alabama’s OC during Saturday’s playoff game against Washington. It was assumed that he would do the same during next week’s championship game, but head coach Nick Saban just announced that Kiffin and…
The new FAU head coach said it best during his introductory press conference: “You don’t get what you want, you get what you deserve.”
Nick Saban wasn’t pleased with his team’s first-half performance tonight against Chattanooga. Can you tell?
At Alabama coach Nick Saban’s press conference this afternoon, a reporter asked him for his thoughts on the election and whether or not Saban thought coaches should avoid talking politics in public. “To be honest with you,” Saban lied, “I didn’t even know yesterday was election day.

It’s recruiting season, which means it’s the one time of year when we get to relish self-serious millionaire coaches embarrassing themselves in order to scoop up the next crop of talented freshman. Take it away, Nick Saban!
Alabama, it will not surprise you if you know Nick Saban’s near-sociopathic attention to detail, had been practicing precisely that onside kick every week since August. But it wasn’t until long film study had identified a potential weakness in Clemson’s kick return coverage, and firsthand observation confirmed its…
Nick Saban is on a nice little streak of press conference hijinks. He followed up last month’s cussin’ and marriage advisin’ by getting fed up with questions about his defensive coordinator possibly becoming the new head coach at Georgia, and then kindly instructed the media to talk to his soda bottle instead.
Alabama is playing FCS school Charleston Southern this week, a cupcake opponent that would be very easy for the Crimson Tide to look past. Well, some of those turkeys in the media might be overlooking Charleston, but Nick Saban sure as hell isn’t.

Alabama lost to Ohio State 42-35 in the Sugar Bowl, and at SEC Media Days yesterday Nick Saban advanced a bizarre theory to explain that loss.
