In his introduction as a guest speaker for the Nike Coach of the Year Clinic, Saban jokingly referred to offensive-minded coaches as “the Taliban” and “Al-Qaeda.”
With every season bringing creative new offensive schemes, Saban says he lives in a constant worry of “what they’re going to do next.”
“All these offensive coaches on here, and I’m sure we got a few… .You guys are all part of the Taliban, man. I mean, you are part of Al-Qaeda,” Saban said. “You have changed our game and made it so hard to play play defense for all of us poor defensive guys.”
Najee Harris, a former offensive player of Saban, was clearly amused by his coach’s statement. Responding to the video on Twitter, the projected first-round running back had a hilarious reaction.
“A yo somebody come get this man,” Harris wrote with some laughing emojis.

Through the Crimson Tide’s national championship-winning 2020 season, Harris played a huge role in the Bama offense that terrorized opposing defenses all year. In his senior season with the Tide, the fourth-year RB collected a staggering 1,891 yards and 30 touchdowns from scrimmage — finishing No. 5 in Heisman voting behind his teammates DeVonta Smith (1) and Mac Jones (3).
Closing out the season at No. 1 in the FBS with 7,041 total yards in 2020, Saban’s Alabama offense is about as scary as it gets.
