Nick Saban talks hip replacement surgery recovery

Alabama

VESTAVIA HILLS, Ala. (WIAT)– Going 13 years strong, the Nick’s Kids Foundation held its annual charity golf event at the Old Overton Club Thursday. 

“I think everybody really understands what Nick’s Kids is all about,” Saban said. “It’s my dad’s legacy of trying to give back to young people. To honor the people who help the young, the people who go unnoticed sometimes.”

Coach Saban also laughed at the latest betting odds on his retirement.

“That’s the first I’ve heard of that one, but it’s amusing.”

Coach said he isn’t quite one hundred percent after having hip replacement surgery over a month ago, but is doing everything he wants to do on a daily basis.
