LISTEN: Nick Saban on Talkin’ Football

MOBILE, AL (WNSP) – Alabama head football coach Nick Saban was in Mobile on Tuesday for the annual Team Focus charity event “A Night with Nick Saban.”

Just before he held a press conference he sat down with WNSP’s own Randy Kennedy and Tracy Turner of Talkin’ Spring Football. Randy spoke with the 5-time National Champion head coach (1 with LSU) about the event, as well as the Alabama A-Day Spring Game on April 22 and its results.

“You want me to be honest or you want me to tell you what I ought to say publicly?” Saban said, joking about how he’s known for being tight-lipped with the media and how the process of spring practice is mainly just a tool for the coaches.

“Publicly, you never have a bad spring practice,” he said. “Everything’s good,… but as a coach I’m seldom satisfied with what we need to do and the progress we need to make. You know, people need to learn how to self-correct. They need to learn how to learn from the mistakes they make and be able to not be frustrated when things to don’t go their way.”

For more, listen to Sports Drive with Randy and Creg weekdays from 3 to 6 pm. Talkin’ Football with Kennedy, Turner and Scott Hunter will return this fall, Tuesdays at 5 pm.
