Nick Saban tries to undo damage from his recent comments about players leaving early

Getty Images Alabama coach Nick Saban, who obviously benefits from players choosing not to leave school early, recently launched into a monologue regarding players who make bad business decisions by exiting prematurely.
Although Saban didn’t name names, it was obvious that he disagrees with the business decision made last year by former Alabama defensive back (and current Jaguars safety) Ronnie Harrison.
Harrison took loud exception to Saban’s remarks.
On Thursday night, Saban concluded a press conference held in connection wit the program’s spring practices to clarify his views, without ever apologizing to Harrison or otherwise admitting that Saban was in the wrong.
“Our whole goal in this program is to help people be more successful in life.
We support every player in every decision they make, regardless of what it is.
That’s what we’ve always done.
That’s something that’s very important to us and very important to the program.
But what else could Saban say after Harrison hit the nail squarely on the head?
Makes me think do you really care about the success of the kid or how well your program performs?” Coaches care about the success of the program, first and foremost.

We support every player in every decision they make, regardless of what it is. We want to help them with all their decisions to have the best opportunity to be successful to create the most value for themselves and their future. Once any player decides what he’s going to do in any part of our program in any way, we’re going to support him in every way…
