The following is an excerpt from an article written by
Nick Saban and Tom Rinaldi arrived at Saban's office, where Saban asked Rinaldi just how terrified his players typically are when they enter the room.
"I'm really in my older age. I don't yell at players. They don't really think this is the principal's office. A lot of times there's teaching done here. Lessons are learned. Here's what you did, here's the outcome of it, this is how it's going to affect your future, this might be a better way to do it. Sometimes it's things we can't tolerate and sometimes you can bring guys in and tell them what a good job they're doing, whether it's community service, how they affected another guy on the team. The meetings in here are not all bad meetings. Most of the time they're to teach a guy so he has a better chance of being successful."
