Last week, Nate Oats revealed why he’s the perfect leader for Alabama Basketball

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called after him His Purpose.”—Romans 8:28 (NKJV)

The morning of January 15 did not start in a typical way for Alabama basketball head coach Nate Oats.

His typical Sunday morning routine consists of breakfast and then getting ready to go to church with his wife and three daughters. After church comes preparation for the team’s next game, including film studies, meetings with assistant coaches, and afternoon practice.

For Oats, however, his Sunday was completely derailed by a phone call.
