Alabama head coach Nick Saban spends every practice working hands-on with the defensive backs and we got a chance to watch him for a few minutes during Tuesday's practice.

Even as the head coach of a team that's been ranked No. 1 at least one week in each of the past nine season, Saban doesn't take a managerial role on the practice field. Each day, the media gets to see him instructing his players, showing them what he's looking for, and even throwing passes during drills.

Check out this look at Saban working with the defensive backs in the video at the top of the page.
