Former Alabama Defensive Back Cyrus Jones: “It Was a Blessing to Be Coached By Nick Saban” [Audio]
It seems that each time a former Nick Saban-coached player speaks about their former coach, it's the same ol' song and dance. When Ryan Fowler spoke with Cyrus Jones on The Game, it was no different.
Cyrus Jones, a former defensive back for the Crimson Tide on their 2015 national championship team, was on with Fowler to talk some Bama football, and also to discuss his experience playing for the greatest coach in college football now, Nick Saban.
"It was a blessing to be coached by Nick Saban everyday. And he's the best coach in college football, and I definitely owe a lot of my success to him."
Jones had great success and had a great career while at The Capstone, but he'll most likely be remembered when the Tide played Michigan State in the 2015 College Football Playoff semifinal game, in which he intercepted Spartan quarterback Connor Cook once and also took a punt to the house, putting the Tide up 24-0 late in the third quarter, and helped shut down the Spartan recievers and their passing game en route to a 38-0 shutout.
You can listen to Jones speak about his former coach below, and be sure to catch The Game with Ryan Fowler each weekday from 2-6 PM.
