Alabama assistant predicts ESPN will make ‘greatest organization in all of sports’ documentary about Nick Saban, Crimson Tide


Alabama assistant Josh Gattis made a big prediction to remember Wednesday. He envisions ESPN airing a documentary about Nick Saban that boasts about the Crimson Tide being “the greatest organization in all of sports” under the coach.

Gattis, who’s Alabama’s co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach, used Twitter to make the bold claim. It’s clear his message serves as an enthusiastic recruiting pitch to social-media savvy prospects. Gattis wrote that players will have two choices when it comes to this predicted documentary: watch it or be in it.

Check out his full message:

Of course, ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentaries have received praise for their quality looks into various sports topics. Check out the clip below to receive a preview of a documentary’s presentation.

Certainly, it’s possible for ESPN to take a look one day into Alabama’s run under Saban, which includes five national titles so far. A deep dive into how the Crimson Tide machine was built with the coach would be entertaining and enlightening.

Given that Saban has been known to be articulate and savvy in front of a camera, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him agree to such a project. Still, it’s quite the claim to say that the Saban-era Crimson Tide will be labeled the “greatest organization in all of sports,” given that there are so many other worthy examples from the college and professional levels inside football and outside it.

Perhaps Gattis will be proven right, though. You never know.
