Nick Saban apologizes for singling out Texas A&M, others in controversial NIL comments

May 20, 2022

After Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher went scorched earth on Alabama’s Nick Saban on Thursday morning, Saban attempted to clear the air with an apology of sorts.

Saban appeared on SiriusXM Radio on Thursday afternoon and said he “never should have singled anybody out” when making comments about the current name, image and likeness environment in college football on Wednesday night.

“I should have never really singled anybody out. That was a mistake and I really apologize for that part of it,” Saban said.

During a lengthy answer during an event with local business leaders in Birmingham, Alabama, on Wednesday night, Saban specifically called out Texas A&M and made reference to their top-rated recruiting class in the class of 2022.
