Heath Evans: Nick Saban once stepped over a convulsing player

Nice guy, this Saban fellow ...

Heath Evans: Nick Saban once stepped over a convulsing player - Shutdown Corner - NFL*Blog - Yahoo! Sports

Nick Saban has never been known as a laugh-a-minute fellow the current head man at Alabama is wound about as tightly as any coach in recent history, and this was especially true when he coached the Miami Dolphins in 2005 and 2006.
Assembling a 15-17 record wasn't good enough for the Nicktator, who headed back to the collegiate ranks and found an environment in which his particular brand of human interaction actually seems to work.
According to former NFL fullback and current NFL Network analyst Heath Evans(notes), the worst example of Saban's impersonal approach happened in 2005, when he actually stepped over a convulsing player after a practice. Evans relayed the story on Miami's 790 The Ticket on Tuesday.

I am beginning to like Heath Evans less and less. Not that Saban didn't do this. And of course if he did, it's a ****ty thing to do, but I just don't think it's appropriate to gossip about something like this.

Heath Evans is a complete douche on NFL Network. He talks as if he's been in broadcasting for about 20 years and tries to 'own' interviews and commentary. I'm pretty disappointed with how he's become. Jed Collins is my hero now! Awesome sideboards!

The Dam Media is every where. Nick Saban steps over one of his football player. Doesn't stop to ask how he doing. And Heath Evans is a complete douche.

I think Nick Saban might fall under that ( Complete Douche )
