Steve Spurrier is no longer roaming SEC sidelines as the Head Ball Coach, but he still’s sharp as ever when it comes to lobbing zingers at his rivals and peers.

For the record, voting was done in advance of Alabama’s loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff championship game. The Maxwell Football Club named Saban its Coach of the Year on Jan. 5, which was fitting as Alabama had a 14-0 record at the time. The Crimson Tide and Tigers met in Tampa on Jan. 9. Saban will be honored at the 80th Maxwell Club National Awards Gala, at the Tropicana Casino Resort in Atlantic City, N.J., on March 10.

Never change, HBC.
