College football coaches around the country have had to adjust to a new normal due to the Global pandemic, whether that is recruiting virtually or contacting players, who are currently on their rosters.
Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide’s coaching staff are no different as they are staying in contact with their current players while practicing social distancing. Most of the Tide’s players made it back to Tuscaloosa earlier this month to prepare for Summer workouts. They were cleared to begin voluntary workouts on June 8 by the SEC.
While performing voluntary workouts, Alabama’s players spend most of their time with Alabama’s strength and conditioning staff, lead by David Ballou and Matt Rhea. However, Nick Saban said they are still in frequent contact with their players on the Alabama Summer update radio show.
“We have had really good feedback from the players,” Saban said. “We have had really good contact with the players because we Zoom with them Monday through Thursday every week somewhere between an hour and a half. So, it is not like we have completely lost touch.”
With some uncertainty circling around the start or if there will be college football, Alabama looks as if they are gearing up to make another push for a National Championship. The Tide’s first game of the 2020 football season is set for Sept. 5 against USC at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
