So it’s no secret I’m a huge ‘fanboy’ of Nick Saban. I admire anyone who exudes such a long trajectory of excellence, discipline and sustained success. It’s hard to argue Saban is the GOAT of NCAA Football Coaches.
This being the case, I was ecstatic when I heard John Talty had written a leadership book with detailed insight about Saban. I reached out immediately to get him on the show. I’m so happy I did. This was such an insightful conversation about the Crimson Tide head play caller.
People like Nick Saban often reach a status of awe it can get somewhat exaggerated. “Is he really that disciplined?”
In a word-yes. John Talty put the Oracle of Tuscaloosa under the microscope and what he found was a genotype that is made up of hard work, straight shooting candor, long hours, philosophical wisdom and what might be surprising to some-humility.
Love him or hate him, Nick Saban is in a class by himself as a leader and coach. I loved getting to speak to John about his new book.
I hope you enjoy this conversation with John Talty.
