Former Alabama Wide Receiver Marquis Maze Still Thinks Of Nick Saban As "One Of (His) Best Father Figures"

Even years after they leave Tuscaloosa, former Alabama football players still look up to head coach Nick Saban. Over the weekend, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix wrote a very nice tribute to his former coaches, including Saban and Kirby Smart, on Instagram. Marquis Maze, an Alabama wide receiver and star punt returner from 2008-2011, put out a similar post on Saturday, calling Saban one of his best father figures.

Maze had a productive career at Alabama as a receiver and punt returner, catching 136 passes for 1,844 yards over four years and taking home two national titles. Alabama fans certainly appreciate Maze, who last played in the NFL in 2012 as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, as well.
