Nick Saban got caught up in one of his players' graduations.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban is one of the most stoic people on the planet, but every once in a while, he reminds us that deep down, he's still human.

Friday night, a photo of Saban hugging his punter J.K. Scott during graduation went viral. It was taken by a woman named Ashley Shires and posted to Twitter.

If you're wondering, Scott, one of the best punters in the entire country, is 6-foot-6. Saban isn't the tallest of men, but it's important to note that his punter is huge.

Saban will need Scott to play well against Clemson on New Year's Day. The Tide is looking to avenge last year's national title game loss to the Tigers.
