Alabama football legendary head coach Nick Saban reportedly gave Brian Kelly advice prior to Kelly taking over coaching duties for LSU football, per on3.com. Saban recently revealed what he told Kelly.
“Not to divulge anything that I talked to anybody else about, but LSU is–you know the people have great passion there,”Saban said. “It’s a really good football job in every way. You’ve got a lot of really good players in the state and you’ve got great support and great passion. And he’d done a really great job of creating the sort of intangibles that you need to have to have a really good team. So, I’ve always thought LSU is a special place because of the passion and the people and the commitment they have to a standard of excellence.”
