Nick Saban is as much a sartorial genius as he is a coaching genius, and we have further proof courtesy of the Alabama Football Instagram account.
Saban was interviewed by ESPN correspondent Shannon Spake for their show Inside the Program, and showed more than a little leg, going without socks to enhance his brown tassel loafers.
The photo was shot inside Saban’s cavernous office, in front of a desk worthy of a president, emblazoned with the Crimson Tide logo. In one corner is a hat rack topped by his now-famous straw hat with crimson hat band. Despite its inconspicuous location, it’s the second-most famous hat in Alabama history.
As ever, the Alabama head coach looks ill at ease and eager to get back to work preparing to take on Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies.
