Nick Saban turns in another masterful photobomb

University of Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Saban stands next to Coaches' Trophy after team beat Notre Dame in NCAA college football 2013 Discover BCS National Championship game in Fort Lauderdale AP

This one may not be as good as the last one, but it’s up there:

For whatever reason, this photo made me think of this quote Saban said after the 2013 BCS Championship:

Q.  You’re just the third college team ever to win three National Championships in a four‑year span.  Do you think someday when you retire, what have you, you’ll look back and say, hey, that was pretty special what we accomplished back then?

COACH NICK SABAN:  Yeah, I think it’s pretty special what we’ve accomplished, what the players accomplished, what the coaches accomplished, I think it’s really special.  And one of these days when I’m sitting on the side of a hill watching the stream go by, I’ll probably figure it out even more.

But what about next year’s team?  You’ve got to think about that, too.

There’s Saban, caught in that awkward moment between looking into the camera and trying to get out of the picture. But who cares if he’s photogenic? He was probably devising some diabolical blitz package for West Virginia.

    That absolutely cracked me up–especially the Robinson tweet.

    He’s just the right height to fit in the picture

    Don’t you know he’s standing on his tiptoes

    Saban is the only sports figure in history whose real time pics actually look more fake than if he was photoshopped in.

    I got to say that Saban is with out a doubt one of the greatest ever. He did well at MSU, won it all with LSU,
    and now three at Alabama. Cant think of another coach who could go to any school and win!
