Nick Saban: Coaching under Bill Belichick was 'worst years of my life'


Nick Saban spent 1991 to 1994 serving as the defensive coordinator for then head coach Bill Belichick and the Cleveland Browns. Apparently, those years are not remembered fondly by the current head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Speaking at the American Football Coaches Association Convention on Monday, Saban provided some insight on how it was like to serve as an assistant under Belichick, which according to this tweet by Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports, was the worst four years of his life.

Now, this was likely a classic case of Saban having some fun with the media, but it should be noted that both coaches have enjoyed tremendous success since their time together.

Belichick has tallied a 163-61 record in 14 seasons with the Patriots, with five AFC titles, and three Super Bowl victories. On the other hand, Saban has notched a 127-31 mark with the likes of both LSU and Alabama. Not to mention four BCS titles.

Yes, perhaps those years weren't so bad after all. Everything worked out just peachy.
