Video: Nick Saban can throw a football better than you

Alabama football coach Nick Saban is currently in Atlanta helping his Crimson Tide with their final preparations for Saturday’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

During today’s practice, Saban, who played defensive back during his college football days, showed that he actually has some hidden talents of his own by showing off his throwing arm.

Saban was tossing the ball to his players and was able to put the ball right on the money down the sideline.

Check out the coach’s handy work:

And before anyone tries to put on their smarty pants, yes, all of the passes were intercepted. But that was the point of the drill. Saban was able to put the ball right where it needed to be for the defenders to appropriately react, however.

In a day where Alabama has used former players as scout team quarterbacks, who knew it would be Saban playing the role of Jake Browning?

Kickoff between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Washington is set for Saturday, Dec. 31 at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN.
