Video: Nick Saban Hosts Recruits At His House, Does The Electric Slide

Dancin' Saban

When picturing a Nick Saban recruiting event, I picture lots of X's and O's, film breakdown, talks of Alabama's rich history, and other dry football-as-life activities that many may associate with a stern coach like Saban. 

So what really happens when Saban invites recruits and their parents over his house during a big recruiting weekend?

Everyone dances to the Electric Slide, apparently:

Saban has had a big offseason, being thrown into rumors about the Texas job and appearing on ESPN's coverage of the National Championship Game, where he came off very well as an analyst. While he probably didn't intend his dance moves to make it to the internet, it's neat to see the other side of the legendary coach come through a bit.
