BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The biggest day of the Regions Tradition is underway Wednesday.
The Celebrity Pro-Am began just before 8 this morning. One of the big names everyone was waiting to see tee off was Alabama head coach Nick Saban. But, they weren’t interested in his golf game.
Saban might have thought he was coming out to Greystone for a nice round of golf. Instead he got swarmed with questions about Cam Robinson and that stolen gun that was allegedly found in his car.
Saban says he has talked with both Robinson and Jones, but is waiting until he gets all the facts before he forms an opinion. He responded to questions about whether the two will be suspended or are the facing discipline. Saban said that they are not going to make any of this public; they’ll do it internally “and we’re not going to do it today. So, if we can change their behavior based on what we do, that would be the purpose of discipline. Discipline is not just punishment which a lot of people view it that way…it’s how do you change somebody’s behavior so that they have a chance to be successful.”
