Nick Saban Supports Player Compensation


Alabama coach Nick Saban thinks that players deserve a voice. He says that he supports the movement for players to gain more benefits and he's been very open about these views.

According toAL.coms Michael Casagrande, Saban was involved in a very popular debate.

Ive always been an advocate of players rights. Ive always been an advocate of players being compensated the best that we can to help them, Saban said. Whatever the NCAA rule is and whatever they decide to do, Ive always been an advocate of the player and the quality of life that a player has. I think that having a voice in what happens, I think, is something that the players probably ought to have.

And Im really not opposed to that at all. I do think that its not what it seems.

Per AL.com, Saban is very involved in Alabamas player and career development program to benefits players and their future. But, Sabans program is considered to be the closest thing to the pros youll find at the college level soits not all that surprising to hear that Saban is in favor of players having more rights and better compensation.
