Nick Saban Explains Why He Quit Drinking Alcohol Over A Decade Ago (VIDEO)

Nick Saban-Alabama Football Campingworld Kickoff September 1st, 2018 in Orlando Florida -USA Alabama Crimson Tide Vs. Louisville Cardinals


Alabama football coach Nick Saban is all about the straight-edge life, and he says it’s probably one of the best decisions he has ever made.

Last week, after Saban’s Crimson Tide beat the Tennessee Vols in Tuscaloosa, Saban reminded us all that he doesn’t smoke when he said he would simply chew on the cigar to celebrate ‘Bama’s victory.

During his appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Thursday, McAfee brought up the cigar moment in a conversation that then turned to the head coach’s decision to give up drinking alcohol more than a decade ago.

“Don’t drink,” Saban said, via 247 Sports. “I used to drink. When we had kids and when my kids were growing up, I decided I didn’t want to set that kind of example for them. I just quit drinking, and probably the best thing I ever did. Never have a hangover. Never feel bad. Just don’t do it.

“Believe me. You have more fun and you enjoy it. You enjoy the relationships more. It’s been a good thing for me, one of the best things I’ve decided to do.”

You have to respect that.

And if giving up alcohol helped Saban become one of the greatest college football coaches of all time, then it definitely was one of the best things he ever did.

Up next left for Saban and the Crimson Tide is a showdown with LSU at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, November 4, after enjoying this weekend off.
