He has put down the straw hat, whistle, and football playbook, but Nick Saban is back coaching.

Kristen Saban Setas, Saban’s daughter, blessed Alabama fans on social media with awesome content of her dad coaching up his grandson, James, in tee ball. Saban is James’ hitting coach, making sure he’s properly hitting the ball off the tee and running.
