“Tommy has always been someone I have tremendous respect for,” said Saban. “We faced each other, but we’ve been really good friends for a long, long time and I’m really happy for him. I think he will do a very, very good job. We have always tried to stay out of the political arena here, just like a world path in the coaching profession, but I am happy to see that he will have an opportunity and I think he will do a very good job. job.
Saban was 1-1 against Tuberville as Alabama coach in Iron Bowl games and 2-3 as LSU coach against Tuberville.
