TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WHNT) - Nick Saban has yet to decide on how he will use quarterbacks Blake Sims and Jacob Coker at the Crimson Tide's season opener Saturday against West Virginia.

"We're going to continue to rep both guys," Saban said. "We feel like both guys have been doing a very, very good job. Obviously somebody has to start the game. We'll make that decision probably at some point in time this week.

"I think both guys are doing a good job right now. We're going to continue to try to develop both of those players at this point."

Saban later clarified he had yet to make a decision on using both quarterbacks against the Mountaineers in a similar fashion to how he split repetitions between A.J. McCarron and Phillip Sims in the 2011 season opener.
