Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban defended close friend Bill Belichick as an “honest” man in response to Deflategate questions.
According to USA Today, Saban and Belichick go way back to the early 90s when they both worked for the Cleveland Browns.
When Campus Insider asked if his New England buddies Tom Brady and Bill Belichick were getting “a raw deal from the NFL,” Saban answered.
“You know, I don’t really know nothing about it to comment on it, but I know Bill, I know the honesty and the integrity and the fundamental person that he is. It would surprise me. And I know Tom Brady pretty well. I know what kind of person he is and that would surprise me. I guess that’s as much as I’d like to say about it.”
Thursday a federal judge overturned Brady’s four –game suspension for allegedly deflating footballs before games. The NFL has already filed an appeal.
