University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban has had his moments of frustration with the media over the years, but during Wednesday’s weekly SEC conference call, he opened up about his relationship with radio host Paul Finebaum.
“I’ve always had a tremendous amount of respect for Paul … I think he’ll do a fantastic job for the network,” Saban said when asked about Finebaum becoming part of the SEC Network.” If he’s happy with the opportunity he has, we’re certainly happy for him.”
Saban said that has periodically consulted with Finebaum “from a public relations standpoint” in order to “brainstorm the best way to manage and handle certain situations.”
Finebaum mentioned the comments on his radio show (1-4 p.m., ESPN 105.9 FM in Jackson), but said little in response.
