He’s the first coach in college football history to average an annual salary of at least $10 million. You can see a year-by-year breakdown below.

If there’s one guy in the world of college football who deserves this kind of cash, there’s no doubt at all that it’s Nick Saban.

The man has won seven national titles and he’s won six of them with the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa. He doesn’t know how to lose.

There are only handful of great coaches in college football, and when you find one, you pay him whatever it takes to keep him.

Well, Alabama has the greatest coach in the country and they just handed him a vault in order to make sure he never leaves Tuscaloosa.
