Nick Saban: 'Terribly disappointing' that ex-Gophers coach called him the devil

Posted by: Michael Rand under Gophers Updated: May 17, 2013 - 1:09 PM

 

Not that most people would be flattered to be compared to the Prince of Darkness, but then again few of us are legitimately granted that comparison. Nick Saban? Well, he's been called the devil multiple times now, most recently by Tim Davis -- former Gophers offensive line coach now in the same position at Florida. And, well, Saban doesn't really care for it. Per ESPN.com:

 

Per AL.com:

Two days after being called "the devil himself" by someone who served on his staff at two different places, Alabama coach Nick Saban sounded hurt.

“It really is a little terribly disappointing,” he said Thursday in response to comments made by Florida offensive line coach Tim Davis.

Saban spoke to members of the news media before a Crimson Caravan stop at Turner Field.

“I try to do right by the people that work for me," he said. "It’s a tough, demanding job. And at the same time, if anybody had an issue or problem with me, I would want them to just tell me.”

Saban is right. Having Davis say to him, "You're the devil," like the old SNL Mike Myers sketches, would have been better.
