Saban to have hip replacement surgery

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - Alabama head football coach Nick Saban is expected to have hip replacement surgery, ESPN reports.

The Crimson Tide coach joked last weekend after Alabama’s spring game that he has a hip injury. On Friday, multiple national outlets confirmed the hip replacement procedure has been scheduled.

The Crimson Tide won’t return to the practice field until August, with Alabama opening the season against Duke on August 31.
