Nick Saban weighs in on ongoing QB battle between Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson
The Alabama football team is in the middle of its second week of spring practice and positional competition is taking place throughout the team. The quarterback competition between Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson has certainly taken center stage in Tuscaloosa.
On Wednesday, Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban joined Heather Dinich for an interview on ESPN. With the ongoing quarterback battle, coach Saban was quickly asked about the competition.
“Well, both of the guys are working hard. The most important thing is that they can stay focused on what they need to do to improve their ability to play winning football at the position.
Which, is an important position because they distribute the ball to someone every play. So, it’s an important position. They’re both guys that have talent and we just have to try to help them develop and focus on the things they need to do to play winning football.”
While coach Saban is likely to allow this battle to play out until kickoff against Middle Tennessee State on Sept. 2, he will most definitely be looking for both Milroe and Simpson to show continuous improvement in the coming months.
