Jenny Dell has been around Nick Saban a lot and has noticed a change in the Alabama head coach’s sideline mannerisms.

Dell joined Thursday’s edition of McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning to talk about what’s changed. Most fans are used to seeing Saban lose his mind following a bad call or celebrating after a big play.

Dell revealed that Saban may not be as fiery as before but is still very passionate about developing players on and off the field. Saban could be starting to soften up a little in his age.

“I do feel like there’s a little bit of difference. It’s funny that you bring up the fiery sideline shots that everyone puts on TV. It’s interesting because at the beginning of the season, he was a little bit more chill on the sideline. His wife, Mrs. Terry who he always speaks so highly of, said, ‘You’ve gotta get fiery out there. I don’t know what’s gotten into you, but you need to just amp it up a little bit.’

“It’s interesting in talking to Saban. He said that as you get older things to start to get put into perspective. He loves these kids like they’re his own. These players are everything. You can just tell that he’s passionate about growing these guys into incredible football players, but also incredible men.”

Alabama fans will have a chance to see Saban on the sidelines again on Nov. 4 as the Crimson Tide are on a bye week.
