Just one day after Texas A&M let go of head coach Jimbo Fisher, Alabama head coach Nick Saban had this reaction..
“I don’t ever like to see anybody get let go, whatever you want to call it, in this business. I know how hard everybody works, I know how difficult it is to sort of build a program, to get players to compete at a high level on a consistent basis, and just have a lot of respect for people who really work hard to try to change the lives of the guys that they’re coaching. Make them better, help them do the right things in terms of getting an education as well as trying to develop them on the football field.
“But we are in a business that you get evaluated based on outcomes and your performance and I hate to see anybody have to go through this. I’ve been fired before, it’s no fun, it’s no fun for your family, but I’m sure that both those guys have great reputations in terms of what they’ve been able to accomplish over the course of their career and I’m sure they’ll have many more opportunities to be successful in the future.”
