Tua Tagovailoa Reveals Surprising Fact About Alabama Coach Nick Saban

Tua Tagovailoa reveals a surprising fact about Alabama coach Nick Saban in a recent interview.

Tagovailoa, 21, appeared on the Dan Patrick Show this week to discuss a variety of topics ranging from his squad’s hot start to the year to his almost-transfer to USC to insights on Saban’s demeanor.

One fun tidbit that emerged from the interview is the fact that Saban, often known as a no-nonsense type of guy, apparently enjoys “deez nuts” jokes.

Following up on a story that former Crimson Tide running back Josh Jacobs told about Saban making “deez nuts” jokes, Tagovailoa confirmed that while he has not heard any firsthand, it does sound like precisely the type of thing the Alabama coach would do.

One of the more serious things touched on during the interview was Tagovailoa’s intention to sign with the Trojans back when he was not getting significant playing time with Alabama.

“Making my parents happy and proud is probably the biggest thing I wanted to do, and I couldn’t do it on the sidelines,” he said.

Apparently Tagovailoa was a big USC fan growing up, hence the desire to put on that uniform.

Tagovailoa backed up quarterback Jalen Hurts as a freshman before ultimately getting an opportunity to play against Georgia in the National Championship game.
