Dye: Nick Saban Best Coach In The Country


Leave it to former Auburn football coach Pat Dye to add a little controversy this week.

While speaking at the Montgomery Quarterback Club, Dye said this about Gene Chizik and Nick Saban.

“Don’t question the guy we got leading the program,” said Dye, who reminded the crowd of Chizik’s part in three undefeated teams, including Auburn’s 2004 and 2010 squads. “I wouldn’t swap him for 10 (Alabama coach Nick) Sabans.“Saban is the best coach in the country — I’ll grant him that. But he ain’t a better man than Gene Chizik.”

Dye basically said the same thing on the Paul Finebaum show a few weeks ago stopping short of saying that Chizik was a good head coach, but saying he was the better man.

As a Alabama fan, you have to smile and chuckle because you’d probably NEVER see a former or present head coach in Tuscaloosa mention the Auburn head coach unless by name unless it is during Iron Bowl week.

So you know Saban must be getting to Dye if he has to even MENTION his name at an Auburn event.
