Alabama football defensive back Malachi Moore is preparing to enter his senior season. On the football field he has been coached for years by Nick Saban, but now he is coached on the driving range.
Saban, who clearly loves football, also has a passion for golf. While golfing is a relaxing time for some (certainly not all), Saban uses it as another coaching opportunity.

In a video shared on Twitter by Yea Alabama’s Aaron Suttles, the two are on the driving range during the Nick’s Kids Golf Tournament. As Moore tries to hit the ball with an iron, Saban can be seen studying his hands and movements. When Moore fails to make contact, Saban tells him what to correct.
On the next swing after the adjustments, Moore makes contact. His swing could use a little more coaching, but Saban would certainly be up to the task.

Moore wasn’t the only one on the team there. Kool-Aid McKinstry and Justin Eboigbe were also on the track. Eboigbe’s swing could also use some of Saban’s coaching magic.
