Mark Brian Kelly down as a coach who isn’t a fan of Nick Saban’s skirting around the rules and using Alabama alumni as practice session players.

When asked about Kelly’s thoughts on Saban’s decision, he reportedly called it ludicrous:

But Saban isn’t breaking any rules, per Sporting News:

“A former student at the certifying institution (e.g., former student-athlete) may participate in an organized practice session on an occasional basis, provided the institution does not publicize the participation of the former student at any time before the practice session.”

Saban has used former players such as Blake Sims, John Parker Wilson and Trent Richardson in recent weeks to help prepare for the likes of Leonard Fournette, Danny Etling and Trevor Knight.
