The star of the documentary about Nick Saban just might have to miss the premiere.

The Alabama coach isn't planning to attend the opening 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 his children 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.
