Nick Saban’s daughter tears up in ‘bittersweet moment’ after his Alabama retirement
Closing this legendary chapter is “bittersweet” for newly retired Alabama coach Nick Saban and his family.
Taking to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday, Saban’s daughter, Kristen Saban Setas, posted an emotional message following the news that the decorated Crimson Tide coach will be stepping down after 17 years in Tuscaloosa, and walking away from the game.
“Bittersweet moment,” Kristen, one of Saban’s two children, captioned one post as she wiped away tears with a tissue.
Kristen followed up that post with a handful of tributes to Saban, who coached his final Alabama game on New Year’s Day, a College Football Playoff semifinal loss to eventual champion Michigan in overtime.
“My phone froze 5 times and shut itself off. My inbox is full (of lovely supportive messages, thank you),” she began in a separate message.
