What coach nick saban had to say at the 2018 sec media days
saban on how much longer he may coach at alabama:
"now, i really enjoy what i'm doing right now, and as long as i'm healthy and i can do it, i'm going to continue to do it and not worry about any numbers or what my age is or anything like that."
saban on the new ncaa redshirt rule:
"i think it's a great rule. i think this is a rule that really benefits players and player development. it was very difficult for us as coaches to make decisions as to whether we should play a player, and when you decided to play a player, you had to make sure he was going to play enough that that would enhance his development so that you wouldn't really waste a year of his eligibility."
saban on if jalen hurts will be on the opening roster:
"well, i have no idea. i expect him to be there. i think it's our job to give both players a very fair opportunity to have a chance to win the team at their position. i think that one of the two guys obviously, both are capable."
saban on the quarterback battle:
"i think it all will be determined. everything you just asked me will be determined by what the players do, the rest of the summer, how they win the team, what they do in fall camp. and i'm not making any predetermined decisions about that. so, they need to continue to compete, like every other person at every other position on our team is competing.
and i love both guys. they're both really good competitors. they are really good people. they are good leaders. they both make great contribution to our team. they are very well liked."
saban on new assistant coach, josh gattis' impact on recruiting:
"josh is an outstanding recruiter. he does a great job of developing relationships with players. he's got great leadership qualities. i think he sets a great example for his players that he coaches. they respond extremely well to him. he's very knowledgeable. and i think the players have a tremendous amount of respect for that."
