Nick Saban the greatest college coach of all time? Mac Jones: 'C'mon, man. Of course he is'
After winning his seventh national championship during his college coaching career, is it safe to say Nick Saban is the greatest college football coach ever?
It is if you ask his quarterback, Mac Jones.
Not long after completing 36 of his 45 pass attempts for 464 passing yards and five touchdowns — without an interception — and leading Alabama’s offense to a 52-24 win over Ohio State in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, Jones was asked if Saban is the greatest college coach of all time.
“C’mon, man. Of course he is. How could he not be? He does it the right way. He recruits well, but more importantly develops great players and young men,” Jones said after the game.
“I’m just so blessed that he gave me a chance to come here along with all my teammates. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. He’s the greatest to ever do it. He’ll be the greatest for a long time.”
Here is a video of Jones’ comments after the title game.
