Nick Saban Was Already Watching Film On Plane Ride Back to Alabama
Nick Saban’s “Process” has little room for rest.
Hours after winning another national championship, Saban was already reviewing film of Alabama’s 45-40 win over Clemson during the team’s flight back to Birmingham Tuesday morning. ESPN cameras on the plane caught Saban in the act.
“We always evaluate how we did on the game on offense, defense and special teams,” Saban told ESPN’s Marty Smith, who received the Crimson Tide’s coach permission to fly back with the team. “We don't have a lot of time to do this when we get back because we have to go recruiting as soon as possible on Thursday.”
Saban does sleep, though, with Smith reporting that the coach took a nap during the three-hour flight.
