Nick Saban is still extremely Nick Saban

Nick Saban has emerged from a successful robotic right hip replacement surgery, which went down on Monday.

Today, Wednesday, he was back in the office at 7:15 a.m.

Saban let his new hip lay him up for around 40 hours, but after that it was clearly time to show that right hip what the expectation is when working for Nick Saban.

“I had one day on the walker,” Saban told the Tuscaloosa News. “Now I’m on the cane. I’ll probably throw that (SOB) away tomorrow."

Saban played golf Monday morning, then went in to the hospital at 3 p.m. that afternoon. A night at the hospital later, he was back home on Tuesday and ready to get back into work on Wednesday.

Saban said he expects to be 100 percent within two weeks (recall the initial recovery process was expected to last six-to-eight) and doctors have told him it will be six before he can play golf again, but added, "I am going to try to get that reduced."

This man will coach until he's 90.
