Terry Saban, the devoted wife of legendary coach Nick Saban, has been a constant presence throughout his remarkable 17-season tenure at the University of Alabama. Count Colorado head coach Deion Sanders among the fans of the legendary duo.

Her unwavering support and remarkable ability to handle the intense pressures and responsibilities that come with being a coach’s spouse have earned her high praise from none other than Deion Sanders.

Deion Sanders recently lauded Terry Saban during a guest appearance on Robert Griffin III’s “RG and the Ones” podcast.

“His wife should teach a class to all coaches’ wives, girlfriends, whatever. She should teach a class on how to handle the stage. And she’s not behind it, she’s right there with him. You talking about a commitment to excellence? Wow.”

Yet, Terry Saban’s influence extended far beyond just her husband’s perspective. Terrion Arnold, a standout cornerback for Alabama, openly acknowledged that “Miss Terry” was not just his best friend but an essential part of the Crimson Tide family. Deion Sanders is clearly right about how much of an impact she has made.

As Nick Saban embarks on retirement from coaching, Terry Saban took a moment to share her heartfelt sentiments with the entire Crimson Tide fanbase. Her words undoubtedly resonate with the countless fans who have admired her steadfast support over the years.

“It has been an incredible run these last 17 years at the University of Alabama and we take with us many amazing memories,” the statement read. “We hope that the Saban legacy will be about helping others and making a positive difference in people’s lives as well as the winning tradition on the field. Our Nick’s Kids Foundation will continue to help children, student, and teacher causes in the State of Alabama. The rules for the game of football may change, but the ‘process’ will never go out of style: hard work, discipline, the relentless pursuit of a worthy goal, not cutting corners, and doing things the right way for the sake of constant personal improvement, not for the scoreboard. Alabama will always feel like ‘Sweet Home’ to our family, and we’ll be cheering ‘Roll Tide’!” 

Nick Saban and his wife will certainly be missed in the world of college football and especially at Alabama. Now, Deion Sanders can only hope to emulate the success that Saban had in Colorado.
