Nick Saban: Coronavirus shutdown ‘drives me crazy’
Many people are making huge adjustments in their life due to the new government rules and suggestions during the coronavirus pandemic. Some can adjust easier than others. For Nick Saban, that adjustment has been difficult.
A hard worker who rarely stops recruiting and coaching, Saban is now adjusting to life that limits him from doing much.
“Anybody who knows me knows I’m not a sit-around kind of guy,” Saban told ESPN’s Chris Low. “Drives me crazy to even think about it. But a lot of us in this country are going to have to adjust to doing things differently, and that includes me.”
Saban acknowledged there is nothing to do right now except manage what he can.
The SEC suspended all athletic activities through April 15, meaning there aren’t as many things for coaches to do. Saban is doing his best to keep in touch with his players, talk with his coaches, and prepare for next season’s opponents. Of course, some with pessimistic outlooks don’t even think there will be a season.
