First a statue and now a film.
Paul Finebaum reports that Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban will be the subject of a new film to be released at theaters and to DVD. “Nick Saban: Gamechanger” will premier August 24. No release dates or theaters were mentioned. No doubt those details will come later. But it appears the film will be hitting in time for football season.
The film promises to be an important tool for those trying to understand Saban, and his leadership style.
According to Finebaum’s column, “We will go behind the curtain and show who he is, where he comes from and how he became the person he is today,” said Grant Guffin, one of the film’s producers. “We want to show the influences that shaped his organizational philosophy, how the operation runs on a day-to-day basis and how he’s been able to have such great success.”
Again, it sounds like a treasure trove of information into how Saban works.
