Nick Saban ‘really happy’ for Jalen Hurts’ success at Oklahoma

Nick Saban

Nick Saban spoke with the media on Monday, two days after Alabama’s season-opening 42-3 win over Duke. The Crimson Tide head coach talked about former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts’ successful debut at Oklahoma and sounded genuinely happy for his former QB.

Saban said he did not get to watch Hurts’ game against Houston because he and his staff were busy working, but he heard Hurts played well and is “really happy” for the quarterback.

Oklahoma beat Houston 49-31. Hurts went 20/23 for 332 yards and three touchdowns passing. He rushed for 176 yards and three touchdowns.

Hurts was at Alabama’s program for three seasons before leaving for Oklahoma as a graduate transfer. He led the Tide to the national championship game as a true freshman. One of his best moments came when he led Bama to a comeback in the SEC Championship Game last season as the backup to Tua Tagovailoa. That performance made Saban emotional.
