Nick Saban has finally caught up with the times.
With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping most of us at home, and student-athletes and coaches apart for the time being, college football coaches have to be up-to-date with new technology. When it comes to Saban, that new technology is actually something that’s now been around for decades.
In an Instagram Live interview with ESPN’s Maria Taylor, Saban revealed that he now has an e-mail account. Now, Saban’s wife — who he refers to as Miss Terry — doesn’t have to filter through her husbands messages.
“One positive of this for me is that I even have an e-mail now. So, I’ve come a long way,” Saban told Taylor. “It was hard to communicate when you’re by yourself and you have to depend on somebody else to get your e-mail and messages and all that. It just didn’t work. They were sending them all to Miss Terry. She fired me. She said, ‘I’m not dealing with your stuff anymore. So, I had to do it on my own.”
Now that Saban is having to communicate from home, he’s become more familiar with Zoom, FaceTime, texting, and e-mail. At least the longtime head coach can put a positive spin on the quarantine life, and give us all a laugh.
Below is the clip of Taylor and Saban chatting, as shared by ESPN:
"They were sending them all to Mrs. Terry, aight. She fired me. She said, 'I'm not dealing with your stuff anymore.'"
