Following the recent surgery, Saban had a scintillating interview where he revealed how his recovery is going.In a recent telephone interview via TideSports, Saban revealed that he went from using a walker to a cane in one day following the surgery. He also jokingly added that he expects to throw “that son of a b—-” cane away soon.“I had one day on the walker. Now I’m on the cane. I’ll probably throw that son of a b***h away tomorrow.”Saban was back at his Alabama office only two days after getting the left hip replacement. However, he was not able to drive himself to work.He expects that within two weeks he will be back to normal, but lamented that he may not be able to golf for six weeks.“I think in two weeks, I will be 100 percent,” he said. “They won’t let me play golf for six weeks for some reason, but I am going to try and get that reduced.”Saban also revealed that he played a full 18 holes of golf before going in for the surgery.He also stated that due to his traveling restrictions, he will not be able to attend the 2019 NFL Draft this week.Several Alabama players are expected to go in the first round, with many more drafted throughout the three-day event.Even so, it’s great to see that not even going under the knife can keep Saban from being Saban.[TideSports]last_img read more
