Coach Once Drove Coke Truck to Make Ends Meet
Well, isn’t this nice? After Alabama crushed Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game last night — surprising no one except Notre Dame’s deluded fans, SEC haters and some in the sports media establishment (not that there’s a difference) — Coke Zero ran an ad paying tribute to ‘Bama Coach Nick Saban.
Voiced by wife Terry Saban, the ad, from agency Melt, hails Saban as one who embraces what’s possible. It also reveals that Saban drove a Coke truck to make ends meet when he was a graduate assistant coach.
