Nick Saban and Bill Belichick have a lot in common, including how they tend to bristle at media questions about how they are preparing for games.
On Tuesday, Saban was asked about how the offense might change now that Lane Kiffen has officially been replaced by Steve Sarkisian as the offensive coordinator. His response was hilarious.
Nick Saban: “I don’t know why you keep asking what changes we’ll make (w/new OC). Maybe I’ll just call Dabo & tell him what we’ll do"

Doesn’t that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?
Really, though, even though media is there to ask questions, nobody can expect Saban to give a response that offers anything at all to an opponent. And asking how the offense will change is just one of those questions he’s not going to answer.
With that in mind, you have to give him credit for at least making a joke out of the situation. Imagine that, Saban’s got jokes.
The always consumed by football head coach will be taking on his friend Dabo Swinney next Monday for all the marbles in the College Football Playoff final. We can’t wait to see these teams square off for the second year in a row.
