Alabama's Nick Saban talks about NCAA rule changes

The NCAA hopes to cap the size of coaching staffs, allowing programs to hire a tenth "on-field" assistant coach but limiting the number of support staff members that help coaches prepare for practices and games during the week (abc3340.com)

Alabama held it's second football scrimmage of the Spring on Friday.

But Nick Saban spent much of his time after the workout answering questions about the NCAA rule changes--including an early signing period for college football, and the elimination of satellite camps and two-a-day practices.

The NCAA also hopes to cap the size of coaching staffs, allowing programs to hire a tenth "on-field" assistant coach but limiting the number of support staff members that help coaches prepare for practices and games during the week.

"I guess it's the paranoia that we all have," Nick Saban said. "That somebody else is doing something that I am allowed to do and everyone else is allowed to do it but you choose not to do it. Just like when I used to go on the road in the spring. Everybody could have gone on the road in the spring. Urban Meyer and I were the only two who went out every day like assistant coaches. So, everybody else would complain about it. But they could have done it. It wasn't against the rules, so they just don't want to work?"
