“Well, let me say this: I met Ms. Terry when she was in seventh grade at science camp and I was in eighth grade, and we were from different schools. And she did not know what a 1st down was when we first started dating, and there’s no doubt in my mind that she thinks she ought to be the head coach at Alabama right now. No doubt. And she is a hell of an assistant, even though she thinks she’s the head coach, which when she’s around, I always make her think that.
“But Terry does a fantastic job, I think, of being very, very supportive, not only in the things that we do, or try to do, in terms of recruiting and getting to know and develop relationships with people that are important to feel comfortable when they come and visit our university and things like that. She does a tremendous job with our Nick’s Kids, which is a tremendous community outreach that helps a lot of people in our state and certainly a lot of victims in the tornado. There’s a lot of people who support that organization, and she does a wonderful job of all that.
“We make a significant contribution to sending I think it’s like eight kids a year on first-generation scholarships to the University of Alabama. She sort of does all that.
“She’s quick to tell me when we’re running it too much up the middle, when we’re not passing enough, when we don’t blitz enough on defense. I get lots of feedback on all those things. So I would say that she’s probably as big a part of the program as anyone in terms of her time, her commitment and all the things that she does to serve people in a really positive way that is helpful to us being successful, not only in football but in the community and what we can do to serve other people.”
