Trickett's first kiss was Saban's daughter
By Jake Trotter
West Virginia's opener with Alabama this weekend took an interesting turn Tuesday when Mountaineers quarterback Clint Trickett was asked after practice about his relationship with Alabama coach Nick Saban.
Trickett's father, Rick, who is currently Florida State's offensive line coach, worked at LSU under Saban in 2000.
Trickett, however, apparently had a relationship with another Saban, as well.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Trickett, when prompted that he probably knows Saban well: "His daughter was my first kiss back in the day. So yeah... I don't know if I should have said that [laughs]. She's actually engaged now. Coach Nick is one of the greatest there is. My brother (Travis Trickett) worked for him. He was a GA for him when he first got to Alabama. And we've known him for years, family friends and just one of the best coaches out there."
Trickett cut off the next question to add one more tidbit: "For clarification, we were like six years old! Just so everyone knows that."
It's unclear at the moment whether this news will affect how many blitzes Saban dials up on Saturday.
