Josh Gattis Was Getting His "Butt Chewed Out" By Nick Saban When Jim Harbaugh Called Him

This is quite the story from Josh Gattis on the process he went through becoming the new offensive coordinator of Michigan.

“When Coach Harbaugh called, it kind of caught me off guard because I had just left a meeting with Nick Saban getting my butt chewed out for 20 minutes telling him I was leaving and he was trying to get me to stay. It did not go over well,” Gattis said. “If there was any band-aid to the bruise or whatever that he left on me, it was that phone call. It was exciting to hear his voice and to talk to him personally.”

What a move from Saban. Your coach tells you that he is leaving and you proceed to chew him out? I am not one to doubt Nick Saban, so I guess I have to respect this reverse psychology move. Reminds me of the Curb episode when Larry tells Leon to reverse the interview:

“Turn that shit around on him”

Harbaugh calling Gattis the second that butt chewing ended reallllyyyy makes you think. Does Jim Harbaugh have Nick Saban’s office bugged?! This goes deeper than I thought. I wouldn’t put it past Harbaugh.
