Nick Saban hires ex-Alabama WR who does spot-on impression of him

Tuesday March 3rd, 2015

Nick Saban added a familiar face to his support staff at Alabama recently, according to, and the person is familiar in more ways than one.

You see, Rob Ezell, who was a wide receiver for the Crimson Tide from 2007 to 2010, does a spot-on Saban impersonation.

It's so uncanny that Ezell and his impressions were featured in a 2010 ESPN special that took a behind-the-scenes look at Saban and Alabama.

With Ezell joining Saban's staff, he should now have ample opportunity to perfect his craft even more.
