Head coach Nick Saban leads an undefeated Alabama team into the SEC Championship Game against the University of Georgia on Saturday afternoon.
That's the same Georgia team that Alabama edged out to win the National Championship last season -- a team that's led by Kirby Smart, one of the many former assistants in Saban's extensive coaching tree.
His former assistants, from his time at Alabama, LSU, Michigan State, and even the Miami Dolphins, are sprinkled throughout college football and the NFL, but their success in the coaching ranks doesn't translate to when they face their former boss. Saban has faced his former assistants 15 times in games, where they're both head coaches, and he's gone 15-0 against them.
