Nick Saban on Standards

-“I think it’s important that we’re all on the same page, in terms of what we’re doing, how we’re doing it and why it’s important to do it that way. But also the standard of what we all visualize as good, acceptable, that’s going to help us improve, *and with+ growth and development.”
-“You have to challenge people to do things a certain way and it may be more than what they expect from themselves. You have to re-enforce positive performance when they do it, but you also have to confront them to do it correctly if they don’t do it that way. And there’s a balance in there.”
-“Are you defining what you expect? If I walked up to them and asked ‘what does the coach expect you to do here?’ Would he be able to answer? Is what you expect from them defined? How they act, how they dress, the 3 technique…”
-“Everybody has to be accountable to a standard and the question is ‘what is everyone doing to impact the success? What is the standard, both individually and collectively?”
