Nick Saban

Short bio: 

Nicholas Lou "Nick" Saban is considered one of the most successful coaches in college football history. Saban is the current head coach of the University of Alabama football team.

Saban first made his name in college sports as the head coach at Michigan State, where he served from 1995 to 1999 . He also served one year as coach of the Toledo Rockets. In 2000, Saban took over the head coaching job for LSU. After heading the Tigers to a 10-3 mark and Sugar Bowl win in his second season, he went on to win a national title with his 13-1 squad in 2003. One year later, he left LSU—and college football—to take the head job with the Miami Dolphins of the NFL. Saban returned to the SEC in 2007—this time as head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide. In 2008, Saban appeared on the September 1st cover of Forbes magazine as "The Most Powerful Coach in Sports

Saban led LSU to the 2003 BCS National Championship and Alabama to the 2009, 2011 and 2012 BCS and AP National Championships, making him the first coach in college football history to win a national championship with two different Football Bowl Subdivision schools. Saban and Paul "Bear" Bryant are the only coaches to win an SEC championship at two different schools. Saban returned to championship form in 2015, leading his team to win the College Football Playoff Championship against Clemson in January 2016.

Dear Mr. Nick Saban:

I’m a huge fan of the Alabama football team. I have watched every single game from the past 2 seasons. Each time we win or lose I have figured out how to be a good sport because of how you say good job and how you congratulate the other team. I like that you are different from other coaches and are hard on the team and try to make them better players and better people at the same time.
The reason I emailed you is because we are doing a dinner for everyday heroes in our lives and the person I picked is my older sister Kiara. Other people are choosing parents, teachers, coaches, firefighters, and other community members.

Our teacher wants us to email a person that has impacted lots of peoples lives, and I decided to email you for my project. Just for an example, you could say something as easy as, “Thanks for all you do to make a difference in the lives of kids.” If you are able to send in the video, we would need it by April 15. The heroes would feel so special being recognized by someone as important as you.

Keep coaching Alabama and ROLL TIDE!!!!

Hello coach Nick Saban how are you? I was wondering when was your football camp starting back up? My son played football for 2 years and he's got all the athletic ability and talent to play, but he gets nervous and scared to hit and tackle, because he don't want to hurt anybody or get hurt! He needs someone to get him out of his fear, so he can shine... What's the cost and where is your camp located? My husband and I would love for our son to attend your camp! Thanks

Don't let nothing stand in your way. let your fear be your strongest Defense, to use as a weapon to fight for what you truly believe in. don't be blinded by the rage that offends you. find your strength through the grace of god, he is the almighty!!! The battle has already been won!!! Only The Warrior With The Biggest Heart, That Wants It The Most, Will Come Out On Top! Once you clock in, it's time to go to work!!! Do Your Job, Don't cheat yourself!!!

Coach Nick Saban, I want to first congratulate you on an excellent coach of the year job you are doing at the University of Alabama football. Coach lets create and implement a SEC conference football dream team. This first ever event will have a huge impact on college football players, colleges, and fans. The growth potential would be astronomical. the best of the best superstar college football players from all the football college conferences competing.. This first ever event would sharpen, increase and accelerate
the talents of all these young college football players. My pick is the SEC will have the best players with the most wins. Lets get this started. Thanks coach for reading my suggestion.

How about suggesting (not requiring) a donation of 2 nonpersible ( no glass) items when attending the game. Think of the good publicity that collecting several thousand items of food for our poor would give the university.

Dear Coach Saban,
I am 17 years old and entering my senior year in high school. My dream is to become a football coach at either the collegiate or professional level. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on what majors I should look at when I apply to college and if you could give me a description of a collegiate football coaches daily work (drills, recruiting, etc.). If you could contact me as soon as possible that would be greatly appreciated as I am soon going to begin the process of applying to different universities. Thanks and ROLL TIDE!

I have to say, it is disappointing to lose the last game of the year especially the National Title Game, but one game doesn't define a team. I am very proud of Alabama and the season that they have had this year. Congrats to Coach Nick Saban, he is in my eyes the best coach college football has ever seen, period. Congrats to the players, people do not need to be down on Alabama for losing. Alabama is a giant and they will be back next year. Be thankful for the success they do have, Hey they won the SEC this year and have beaten everyone on their schedule coming into the National Title Game. I want to thank Nick Saban and the rest of the team, I believe in all of you. As the old saying goes, you can't win them all. Be proud of yourselves, Coach Saban has really built a special program in Alabama and I am very proud of the entire team. Thank all of you and start looking forward to this years schedule. ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!!!! God Bless....

Hello, this is Clay Ables. My Dad's side of the family is from Alabama. All 13 brothers and sisters of my grandparents grew up in Alabama working.

They did two things growing up. Work and Alabama Football.

Throughout many generations, the passion and pride of The Crimson Tide have been passed down my family.

One of the biggest fans of them all was my Uncle Darryl.

He grew up playing football at Floyd Central High School and lived breathing and playing the attitude of Alabama Football.

After many years of living and breathing Alabama Football, my uncle passed away at the age of 51.

His kind soul and big personality took over rooms and carried the heart of our family.

We lost the spirit of our family when he passed.

He left behind a wonderful wife and three incredible kids who all married people, that adored Darryl as well.

I could think of nothing more to make them happy than to have Coach Saban in some way, whether it be a letter, a signed ball to The Ables Family or Darryl, or a short video thanking Darryl for his support of Alabama Football to make them feel that kindness of Darryl again.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you and have a blessed day.
