Kirby Smart reflects on Nick Saban’s impact on his career when the two reunite at a golf tournament

Former Alabama head coach Nick Saban and his former staffer turned Georgia head coach Kirby Smart reunited Wednesday at the Regions Tradition.

Saban won his final game as head coach of the Crimson Tide last season against Smart and the Bulldogs in the SEC Championship.

Smart took some time to talk to the media about Saban’s impact on his career, which started at Alabama in 2007.

“Nick was great,” Smart said, according to AL.com. “He’s been great for my career. He’s a great man. He is a leader in college football and will continue to be so. He has been very supportive of me and my family.”

The two also hugged before leaving that day.
