Nick Saban had an awesome moment with a reporter at his press conference this week when an unexpected guest joined in on the festivities.
The Alabama athletic department shared a video of Saban fielding questions when Alabama beat writer Aaron Suttles took his turn to ask questions. Suttles was joined by his adorable son and Saban had to take notice.
When Saban saw the baby, he jokingly asked if he was meeting “the boss.” Saban added, “This is the best behavior I’ve seen you on since I’ve been here. If this is the way it’s going to be, I’d like for him to be there all the time,” and everyone got to share a laugh.
Suttles took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the moment after it was all over.
“Well, this is a moment for which little man will one day laugh at me,” he said. “Thanks to Coach Nick Saban for showing me some graciousness as I was forced to pull dad duty during his press conference tonight.”
