You probably won’t be shocked to hear this, but Alabama coach Nick Saban has no interest in joining Twitter. When asked today at his weekly press conference about whether he’d ever join the social media platform, he dropped a fairly amusing quote on the audience:
Saban: I’ve never considered joining Twitter, and I don’t know why anyone ever would.

Saban also went on to say that there is no official policy regarding his players using Twitter, but that they’re all made aware of what they can/can’t tweet. He said the program does its best to monitor what the players are putting out there as well.
Some coaches feel that connecting with their players on social media and staying current is important. Clearly Saban doesn’t – and clearly it hasn’t affected his program’s success. Still, who wouldn’t love to see a #SabanSelfie before game day?
