Nick Saban responds to former assistant referring to him as the "devil himself"

Alabama head coach Nick Saban responded to remarks made by former assistant Tim Davis on Thursday calling them "terribly disappointing."

Davis referred to his former boss as the "devil himself" on Tuesday during a booster club meeting in Florida.

Here is what Saban had to say about Davis' comments:

“It really is a little terribly disappointing,” Saban told reporters Thursday night in Atlanta, according to’s Don Kausler Jr.

“I try to do right by the people that work for me,” he added. “It’s a tough, demanding job. And at the same time, if anybody had an issue or problem with me, I would want them to just tell me.”

Davis served as an assistant under Saban at both Alabama and the Miami Dolphins. Davis now serves as an assistant under Will Muschamp at Florida.

Saban added this about the situation:

“It’s just disappointing. If somebody has a problem with me, I’d appreciate it if they’d tell me. If I’m doing something to offend somebody, I’d certainly like to do whatever I have to do to fix it. It’s not our intention. It’s not what we try to do.”
