TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — It’s being promoted as “Nick Saban like you’ve never seen him before.”
Saban opened up his home on Georgia’s Lake Burton to ESPN reporter Marty Smith and college football analyst Tim Tebow.
Smith said the goal of the piece was to “humanize” Saban, according to ESPN’s news release.
The interview took place on July 30, just a few days before Alabama opened fall camp. The trio discussed non-football topics including life and family during their boat ride and walk by the lake.
The preview below shows a loose Saban having fun at the lake.
Saban has been more open about his life in recent interviews. He’s said that he wishes he had spent more time with his children while they were growing up.
It’ll be interesting to see what Smith and Tebow are able to pull out of the Alabama coach.
The piece is scheduled to air Sunday morning at 9:30 ET on SportsCenter.
