Hear What Coach Saban Had to Say About Butch Jones Following Alabama’s Pro Day
Although the focus was suppose to be on the Alabama players preparing for the upcoming NFL Draft, the talk of Alabama's Pro Day on Wednesday afternoon was former Tennessee head coach Butch Jones appearance wearing Alabama gear.
Nick Saban has been a gentle soul over the last couple of months bringing in former SEC coaches like Jones and Hugh Freeze for a potential role with the program, but in the case for Jones, there is mutual interest with both parties with the title offensive analyst being thrown around.
Coach Saban spoke to the media following Alabama's Pro Day and he discussed the possibility of Butch Jones coming to Alabama.
"We have issues that we have to go through to hire somebody from another school and I haven't gotten a report on where that is right now," Saban said. "We are interested in him being a part of our staff. We all just had a lot of respect for him when we had to play against him, so that's why we are interested in him."
He also talked about his players in this upcoming NFL Draft with high praise for Bradley Bozeman, Rashaan Evans and Calvin Ridley.
