Sean Tuohy Jr., of ‘Blind Side’ fame, reveals what it was really like ‘negotiating’ with Nick Saban

Sean “SJ” Tuohy Jr., is an assistant director of football operations on coach Chad Morris’s staff at Arkansas, but he is perhaps more famous for the way he was portrayed in the famous movie “The Blind Side.”

The movie chronicles the life of former Ole Miss OL Michael Oher, who becomes like a big brother to SJ.

Even though Tuohy has moved on with his life and is obviously no longer a little kid, the movie follows him around everywhere. In one of the most famous scenes of the movie, then-LSU coach Nick Saban comes in and SJ tries to negotiate with him for Oher’s services — demanding sideline access and other things.

However, in an interview with, Tuohy said he thinks the “negotiating” was a little more one-sided than the movie portrayed:

“I don’t know how well the negotiating went,” he said. “I think he was like, ‘You’ll get what you get and you’ll be happy with it.’”

Saban is obviously now with Alabama, so he and Tuohy will get to reunite this year when the Hogs take on the Tide.
