Nick Saban is arguably the greatest football coach of all time. Seven national championships and a 269–67–1 collegiate record speak for themselves.
That said, there is one red mark on Saban’s career – his unfortunate stint as head coach of the Miami Dolphins in the NFL.
This week, a new chapter in that story was written.
It involves Saban and a stripper.
During a recent episode of “The Pivot Podcast,” host Channing Crowder opened up about one particularly memorable encounter.
“I brought strippers to the Dolphins’ facility,” Crowder said.
“She walked in with nothing but a thong on and a Jason Taylor jersey, and she went up there, Nick Saban was in a chair. She shook it for Nick Saban. Nick Saban grabbed her hips, pushed her to the side and ran up the stairs.”
Crowder played for Miami from 2005 to 2010.
Saban went 15-17 in the NFL and then skedaddled from the pro ranks with his tail between his legs. So this stripper thing isn’t the most embarrassing thing to happen to him during that time – his actual coaching tenure was.
Still, it makes for a funny story.
Saban has had a busy few months. Between getting vindicated about his Texas A&M claims, fending off rumors of tampering and having to sit back and listen about who the 4 frontrunners to replace him are – it has been one thing after another.
Then again, at least he isn’t embroiled in a scandal over DMs he sent to a college girl like Liberty University head coach, Hugh Freeze.

Saban and Alabama are currently the favorites to win the national championship in 2022-23.
Will the Crimson Tide deliver on expectations?
Time will tell.
