VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. — Despite being called out on Twitter, Alabama coach Nick Saban said he doesn’t have a problem with Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
Prior to the Nick’s Kids golf tournament, Saban was asked for his thoughts on Harbaugh’s recent comments about the Alabama program. A couple of weeks ago, Harbaugh criticized Saban for lecturing coaches about the possibility of rules being broken at satellite camps, as he put it.
While Harbaugh has come out strongly against Saban and Alabama, Saban has been careful with his words when discussing the Michigan coach. That remained the case on Thursday.
“I have no beef about Jim Harbaugh. Jim Harbaugh is fine with me,” Saban said. “I didn’t say anything about him, and I’m not saying anything about him right now. Everybody’s got the right to manage their program like they want. I’m not in anyway critical of anything that he’s doing or done or said or anything else. I don’t really care.
“I’m worried about what we do, what our program does, what our players need to do or what our coaches are doing. That’s enough for me. That’s as much as I can handle.”
Still, don’t be surprised if Harbaugh responds once again when he gets wind of Saban’s latest comments.
