Here’s what the Crimson Tide’s head coach said about what’s to come in 2018.
Who’s going to start at quarterback for Alabama in 2018?
In the minds of basically everyone, it’ll be Tua Tagovailoa, the rising sophomore who led the Crimson Tide to a national title against Georgia on Monday night.
Nick Saban, though, isn’t ready to say that.
Alabama’s head coach was asked about the future of the quarterback position early on Tuesday morning and said it’s a decision that he doesn’t have to make right now.
“Look, we have two good quarterbacks on our team, no doubt,” he said. “I think that we haven’t really made a decision about that, and it’s not imperative we make one right now. We’ve got two fine young men who really respect each other and have worked hard to help each other all year long.”
Tagovailoa and Hurts will probably battle this spring and, assuming Tua wins the battle, it’s possible – likely, even, that Jalen will transfer.
