Saban Lauds DeBoer Hire
Nick Saban has made his opinion known: He approves of his former boss Greg Byrne's new hire, Kalen DeBoer. Here's what Saban said in a Friday night statement:
"I want nothing more than to see Alabama football continue to be successful, and Coach DeBoer is an outstanding choice to lead this program," Saban said. "He has a proven track record of success and is one of the brightest football minds. Coach DeBoer has an excellent understanding of what it takes to be a successful head coach, whether it's coaching, recruiting, developing players or building a culture.
"He has done a fantastic job at every stop of his coaching career, and I am excited to see what he will be able to accomplish in Tuscaloosa.
"Terry and I will be here to support Coach DeBoer and his family with everything they need."
