When addressing one of the most successful and powerful figures in the sport of football, what would you call him?

Nick Saban? Nick? Saban? Coach? G.O.A.T?

Well, according to Alabama football head coach Nick Saban, you can address him as just about anything.

It has been a topic of discussion in the past, with some claiming he must be addressed as ‘Coach Saban.’

Yesterday, during SWAC media day, Jackson State head coach, Deion Sanders, told a reporter, who called him “Deion,” that, “You don’t call Nick Saban, ‘Nick.’ Don’t call me Deion,” Sanders said.

Sanders, who has countless nicknames, also went on to say that Saban would “cuss out” a reporter who addressed him by his first name.

However, that’s just not the case. Saban doesn’t really seem to care. In fact, he spoke about it today.
