Alabama football coach Nick Saban isn’t a fan of electronic communication.

During a Wednesday appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show,” the six-time national champion said he has never texted or emailed anybody. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Instead, he just calls them after receiving a message.

This is the least surprising piece of information about Nick Saban that I’ve ever learned. It’d actually be surprising if he was texting up a storm.

Despite the fact that Saban just started an email for the first time, I’m not surprised one bit that he doesn’t use it.

The dude is old school! Why text somebody when you can create a real connection with a call? Who wouldn’t want to hear some inspiring words from Nick Saban?

Say whatever you want about Alabama football and the SEC, but Nick Saban is a content goldmine. The dude is just living on another planet.

Not one text? Not a single text ever? I love it. I absolutely love it. In my mind, he’s just screaming at people nonstop over the phone.

Never change, Saban. Please, never change!
