Ha Ha Clinton-Dix finds himself in a new, yet familiar position with the Alabama Crimson Tide. The former Bama star has now joined the staff as the Director of Player Development.
He was hired in the role this past offseason, and this week marked his first day on the job. It didn’t take long for him to land what he called an “a– chewing” from his former head coach.
Nick Saban has been roaming the sidelines in Tuscaloosa for what seems like an eternity. The future Hall of Famer has racked up an NCAA record seven national titles, six of which have come during his 16-year stint with the Tide.
Saban is known for his no-nonsense style of coaching, and he can often be seen giving his players and assistants, um… a bit of tough love, let’s say, on the sidelines.
Look no further than this epic explosion dating back to his days at LSU.
Not much has changed since his arrival at Alabama…
On Tuesday, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix talked about his first day on staff with the Crimson Tide. He found himself in an all too familiar position.
Clinton-Dix, like any Alabama player in the recent past, has been chewed out a time or two by Saban. Despite being a two-year starter and eventual first round pick, he found himself on the receiving end of the head coach’s wrath on numerous occasions.
That doesn’t plan to end soon based on his experience as a staff member.
1st day on the Job I got a Ass Chewing from Coach Saban. 1 down 5 million to go. #RolltideRoll 😫☺️

Fans were quick to respond online.
One person wrote, “Now that’s funny. Welcome back sir. Glad to have you back at Alabama.”
Another said, “Like you never left.”
Just like old times for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. He’ll look to help guide the program back to the College Football Playoff in his first season on staff.
