You may remember the name Josh Luchs. He’s the former agent who revealed to SI last year that he paid college football players for years. Luchs has a book he’s promoting and he made an appearance on WHB radio in Kansas City Thursday. During the interview, Luchs talked about Nick Saban’s “pimp” comment about agents. Luchs slammed Saban, saying “What he’s done now is he’s showed us who the whore is.”
Here’s the audio clip:
As many people pointed out when Saban made his remarks, it was a tad bit ironic. Here is a coach who makes millions of dollars per year off players who don’t get paid. That may not be what a pimp does, but it’s not as if Nick Saban is innocent in the situation. Heck, his own players have had strong ties to a men’s clothing store. But getting back to it, while “whore” is a strong word, the irony of Saban calling agents “pimps” is even more piercing.
