Alabama head coach Nick Saban ended his press conference prematurely on Wednesday after he became frustrated with questions about a Yahoo! Sports article citing documents and text messages that have led to an improper benefits investigation. Former Crimson Tide lineman DJ Fluker has reportedly been interviewed by compliance officers and is cooperating with the school’s investigation regarding claims that he took money and benefits while at Alabama.
Saban, who was looking to discuss his team’s upcoming game against Texas A&M, was repeatedly asked questions about the article.
“I don’t know anything about any current players that will have any circumstances relative to this,” he replied. “So there’s no sense in asking about that.”
Of course, it was the only topic reporters wanted to discuss. Saban said multiple times that he had nothing more to add and that Alabama athletic director Bill Battle had already addressed the matter on behalf of everyone.
