Nick Saban partners with Ryan Leaf to discuss opioid misuse in West Virginia

Nick Saban has always been about seeing the bigger picture.

Student-athletes make mistakes and coaches get in rough situations, but Saban is one for second chances.

He has embraced troubled players and coaches; nevertheless, it is about helping them redefine their value. When he is not applying the practice at Alabama, Saban is helping others succeed in their endeavors. As a West Virginia native, he partnered with Ryan Leaf to discuss the misuse of opioids in the state and help find solutions. Before the turn of the millennium, Leaf was pegged to be the next elite franchise quarterback in the National Football League.
