TUSCALOOSA (AP) — The star of a documentary about Nick Saban might just have to miss the premier.

The Alabama coach isn’t planning to attend the premier of “Nick Saban: Gamechanger” Tuesday evening in Birmingham. Saban has practice late Tuesday afternoon in Tuscaloosa, followed by a visit with the media and staff meetings.

The Crimson Tide is preparing for its opener Sept. 4 against San Jose State.

Saban’s wife Terry and children Nicholas and Kristen are expected to attend, along with Crimson Tide athletic director Mal Moore. The documentary is produced by Flashlight Media of Memphis, Tenn.

It features footage from the Tide’s national championship run last season.
