Alabama head football coach Nick Saban launched an epic rant Wednesday night on his radio show targeting the high expectations and lack of gratitude of some Alabama football fans.
Saban lasted nearly four minutes at Baumhower’s Victory Grille in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Wednesday night.
He ended with Saban saying, “Nobody wants to win worse than them. Not me, not you, I don’t care what type of fan you are. Nobody wants to win more than the players who play. Nobody.
“And no one feels worse than when they lose,” Saban continued. “Nobody. So for all the self-centered people who can’t look past their own self, okay, to appreciate what other people are doing.”
Lane Kiffin, Ole Miss’s head football coach and Saban’s former assistant coach, reacted to a video of the rant.
Kiffin tweeted: “Happy Thanksgiving Coach! It made me smile! Tell them how you really feel. Very grateful for you and Miss Terry.”
Kiffin included two heart emojis and a goat emoji.
Miss Terry is Saban’s wife, Terry.
Kiffin was an Alabama offensive coordinator from 2014-2016 under Saban.
Kiffin’s Ole Miss football team is set to face Mississippi State at 6:30 p.m. CT Thursday. The Alabama and Auburn football teams are scheduled to meet in the Iron Bowl at 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday.
