Saban Speaks to Hundreds in Mtgy.; Says Coaches Must Set a Good Example
From Montgomery -- Hundreds of high school principals and athletic directors from across the state turn out to hear from University of Alabama football Coach Nick Saban. His proven record of championship success has many wondering how to build the total program, and today, Saban let them in on his secrets.
In front of a full house, Saban gave his words of advice to more than 600 athletic directors and principals.
Saban says it's important they inspire and build trust with their students and players, and that criticism should always be professional and never become personal.
"Very inspiring from a very inspired coach," says Sparkman High School Athletic Director Maurice Jones.
As soon as today's event was over, Saban immediately went back Tuscaloosa. He didn't want to miss any of today's practice. Spring Practice for the Tide started on Monday.
