Former NFL quarterback Terry Bradshaw said in an interview on the “Paul Finebaum Show” that Alabama head coach Nick Saban‘s $11.25 million salary is “shameful.”
“If he has the personality of Steve Spurrier, then I would like him,” Bradshaw said, per The Comeback. “Spurrier, now you’re talking about a great coach. That’s a great coach, Steve Spurrier, not Saban. Saban hates people. The man doesn’t even like people.”
It seems a bit envious of Bradshaw to comment on Saban’s salary for no real good reason. Bradshaw has a pretty cushioned job behind the NFL desk on Fox every Sunday, plus the benefit of being in Los Angeles all year round.
Saban’s salary maybe over the top, but the amount of money and recognition he brought to Alabama is undeniable and that is where the value is coming from.
