Nick Saban addresses Mac Jones' development and whether he's exceeded Saban's expectations
Alabama QB Mac Jones is off to a fantastic start this season, and has even drawn some talk among Heisman Trophy contenders. But first, he had to wait his turn at Alabama, and settle into the starting role.
Now he’s leading a high-flying offense that shows no signs of being slowed down anytime soon. How did he reach this point? Coach Nick Saban shared his thoughts on Jones’ development on the SEC coaches media teleconference.
“We’ve obviously always had a tremendous amount of respect for Mac and how he viewed his development as a player,” Saban said.
Saban said Jones was never discouraged, never talked about leaving, but had to earn a spot there. Saban said development is something that all players, at all levels, need to focus on.
