While on "The Pivot" podcast Tuesday, former Alabama and current Pittsburgh Steelers star Najee Harris revealed he and his former coach Nick Saban used to fight each other all the time during his four years at the school...
quote:

"I'm not the type of dude to sit back and just let somebody talk to me in a way and expect me not to say something," Harris said during the interview with Ryan Clark, Channing Crowder and Fred Taylor.

"I can take coaching, but, like, it's just a certain type of line when you cross, like all right, bro, I'm a man, you ain't gon' f***ing talk to me like that."

"Don't think you're more than just a coach to me. Don't try to belittle. I felt like I was belittled."

"Last incident happened and I left school," Najee said. "I left school for like two weeks -- people didn't know that. I left school for like two weeks and then Saban sat me in his office."

Harris says they were able to clear the air for good during that 1-on-1 sesh, and "ever since that day, we was rock solid."

Why didn't Harris tell us the details?

You can hear Clark "its Time Bama got a black coach"

And without Saban's disciplined approach to football and all the notoriety and center-stage exposure that comes with it, Harris is on a street corner, selling pencils.

Saban told him no, something he had never heard before.

Cry me a river ! The man coached you, taught you, and molded you in such a way that you went on and fulfilled your dream of playing in the NFL. Without him, and his discipline, your chanced of reaching your dream would have been severely diminished. Your "interview" should have said nothing but "THANKS, Coach Saban, and the University of Alabama".
