There is nothing fans won’t do to try and troll athletes, or in this case, a head coach. A young LSU fan reportedly snuck into SEC meetings and offered Nick Saban a bribe to retire from coaching.
According to Trey Wallace of Outkick, the high school junior made his way past security and approached Saban as the seven-time national champion was eating lunch. He took that opportunity to offer Saban $5,000 to step down from his head coaching position because he’s tired of seeing him beat his LSU Tigers.
“For the pain he’s given me for the past twelve years. January 9th to 2022, he has given me so much pain,” the kid told Wallace. “I go to the LSU-Alabama games, I sit there in the 4th quarter, LSU is up and I think this is the year and then I just see Saban just run away with it.
“I am a diehard LSU fan. I build myself up on Fridays thinking this is the year we’re gonna beat him, we’re gonna beat ’em. They have the lead and then they just blow up. I just think that I can’t believe I just witnessed another Saban beatdown again.”
Saban has confirmed the conversation with Wallace.
“I respect him, I respect everything he does, I love his process, I love everything about him. I just can’t stand losing to him.”
Saban didn’t take the $5,000 offer, later stating “he was a cute kid.”
