Mac Jones is confirming the best rumor the internet has ever heard about Alabama football coach Nick Saban.
Saban is known for being all business and keeping his Crimson Tide squad at the top of the college football world. But as it turns out, he is also a big fan of deez nuts jokes.
Alabama junior safety Jordan Battle previously revealed the nugget about Saban when he was asked about some of his favorite quips. Of course, the comment that Saban likes deez nuts jokes quickly went viral and now we can all take joy in knowing that it is actually true.
Jones, who was selected in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots after leading Alabama to a national championship, confirmed the rumor during an appearance on Merloni & Fauria on Monday.
“I think it’s kind of his thing. He’s been doing it for awhile. I think he maybe needs to get some new ones,” Jones said.

Well, there we have it, folks. Nick Saban is actually one of us.
Unfortunately, he is making millions and leading the No. 1 team in the country while we are sitting at home giggling over the jokes. But, it’s kind of the same thing, right?
Anyway, the Crimson Tide return to action this weekend by welcoming Southern Miss to Tuscaloosa. Then, things pick up for Alabama with a home game against No. 13 Ole Miss and trip to No. 7 Texas A&M to get October underway.
