Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban finally has email. Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Saban may be one of the most successful coaches in the history of college football, but he can be a bit backward with technology.

Saban told ESPN’s Maria Taylor on Wednesday that one silver lining of the coronavirus pandemic is that he’s finally set up his own email address.

Email is not new. It has been around for decades. All of Saban’s peers have probably been using it for years, but the Alabama coach does things his way. To be fair to him, he’s been pretty successful without it, so who are we to judge?

It is absolutely funny that Saban is only just now getting into email while simultaneously giving his players Apple Watches.
