Heath Evans Wonders If Nick Saban Is Human, Recalls Time Coach Stepped Over Convulsing Lineman Without Helping

Nick Saban will bring his Alabama Crimson Tide to New Orleans to play LSU in the BCS championship game, but Heath Evans most likely will not be rooting for him.

Evans, the former Miami Dolphin, New England Patriot and New Orleans Saint spoke to 790 The Ticket in Miami on Wednesday morning and recounted a time when Saban reportedly stepped over a convulsing Dolphins player that had collapsed after an early-season practice.

“Nick Saban literally just starts walking in, steps over [offensive lineman] Jeno James convulsing, doesn’t say a word, doesn’t try to help, goes upstairs, I don’t know what he does,” Evans recalls.

“He showed no human emotion for one of his best players. He literally stepped over him when four or five grown men are trying to carry Jeno to the training room.”

While Evans admits that Saban has had some success coaching at the college level, he does still wonder about his former coach’s personality.

“Ultimately, [Saban’s] got some ways about him that I’m just like, ‘Are you human?’ I think he might be a robot.”

Audio of Evans’ comments is below, with a hat tip to Sports By Brooks who brought this story to our attention.
