Nick Saban has never been too fond of the media during his time as a football coach. The Alabama Crimson Tide boss usually likes to keep his distance and say as little as possible, very much like Bill Belichick or Gregg Popovich.

Well the 62-year old took it to a whole new level yesterday, telling the assembled reporters that they could "kiss my ass".

The story stems from current Alabama running back Derrick Henry posing for a picture next to his brand new crimson Corvette, an expensive car that a college kid probably couldn't afford. On Wednesday, former West Virginia quarterback Pat White said he'd been offered a car to join the Crimson Tide in on Facebook, writing, “Stop pretending like you didn’t know the crimson tide has been doing this for years. Still glad I turned down a Corvette to become a mountaineer.” 

Saban was the coach of LSU at the time that White was being recruited and showed obvious contempt for the question. reported the Saban encounter saying:

"At Nashville reporter broached White’s claims of improper offers in the recruiting process. Alabama spokesman Jeff Purinton stepped in and said Saban was not with the program at the time of White’s recruitment.

But Saban responded anyway. “I didn’t even know it happened,” he said. “So I can’t comment on it. … Is that the best thing we can talk about? … kiss my ass.”
