Nick Saban is known as a no-nonsense kind of guy, but he shows that he has a pretty good sense of humor from time to time.

The Alabama head coach spent some time at ESPN studios in Bristol, Conn., earlier in the week. During a “Cage Confessional” segment taped with host Colin Cowherd, Saban showed the lighter side of his personality by donning a big, green Luigi hat.

Cowherd also got Saban to admit that he was afraid of Santa Claus as a child. After the two took a selfie, Saban also revealed that when he was nine years old, he became involved with sports because he didn’t want to play the accordion.

That turned out to be a pretty good move.
