Nick Saban was going to find Dabo Swinney after the national title game, no matter how long it took.
Monday night, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney won his first national title, as his Tigers knocked off previously undefeated Alabama in epic fashion on a last-second touchdown pass from Deshaun Watson to Hunter Renfrow. After the contest, he was congratulated by someone who has experienced what it’s like to win a national title – Nick Saban.
But apparently, it took Saban a bit of time to find him.
In the video below, shot by AL.com, Saban searches the field for almost two minutes before finding Swinney. It’s pretty obvious that he wasn’t going to leave the field until he found him, however.
Props to Saban for not getting too frustrated during the mayhem.
Saban and Swinney have a lot of respect for each other – it was never on display more than it was Monday night.
