Post Re: Saban loses another assistant

I have worked for demanding bosses, but the good ones make you into a better leader or officer or coach, whatever the context is of your relationship and your job. There is a right and a wrong way to demand excellence.

I watched an ESPN segment with Marty Smith. It was about Saban playing basketball at lunch with his assistant coaches. It struck me as being pretty lousy that he was the one that interpreted all of the rules so that he won these games. The segment was done in good humor, but the former coaches that interviewed made it perfectly clear Saban's team always won.

I know that might seem trivial to mention that story, but what does that say about Saban as a person that he feels he has to control the outcome of a pickup game of B-ball?
