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!!!

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.

My name is BJ Johnson. I am a huge Nick Saban fan and would love to bring a football to be autographed. I am a university of Louisiana alum and just love his coaching style. We have a group of guys that make an SEC trip every year! This past year was a blast at Texas A&M. The choice for 2018 between Starkville and Tuscaloosa was unanimous. Can't wait to see campus and stadium. THANKS!!! GO CAJUNS!!!! ROLL TIDE!!!! BEAT LSU!!!!!

I am no one special. I am just a survivor of sexual assault. There are doctor's that say I shouldn't be here because of the head injury I received because of my assault. I am not on disability yet I should be. Not once have I given up even though it looked like I might have lost the fight. But there are a few things that has kept me going when I wanted to give up.
1. The women who didn't survive and the ones that will not.
2. My family
3. You and the never quit or back down attitude you teach the team and those boy's.
Your message of winning and not giving up reaches more than just those young men you coach. It reaches the fans as well. That message saved my life when I thought about quitting. Thank you for saving my life and inspiring me to fight.
Roll Tide!!

Coach Saban, I am and have been a die hard Bama fan for 45+ years. I now live in NC and work for lawyers. My office is tastefully decorated so everyone knows that I am a Bama fan which is a thorn in the backside of many here. I have been asked to relay a message from one of our partners to you and didn't know where else to place the request so I hope this message gets to you. Fred Berry requests that you show a little charitable sportsmanship and put some of our 3rd string players out in the 4th quarter. LOL! I do not get asked who Alabama is playing this weekend - I get asked who is Alabama beating this weekend!! :-) All my best and Roll Tide!! PJ

I am a great fan of yours and the Tide football team. I want you to know that I am very proud of the season you and the team had this year. It hurt that the team lost the final game but, win, lose or draw The Crimson Tide will always be my team. I enjoy watching them and I like how far you've bought them. Under your coaching, the team has come home with more trophies than can be counted and for that, I am proud. Tell the players to keep their heads up and walk proud and know I'll be cheering and watching them!

Dear Nick Saban,

I’ve been so inspired by your work and energy you put into at Alabama, from the way you coach and from the way you love your players. It’s always been a dream of meeting you! I just love the way you coach and discipline the players and you always have a standard you set at Alabama. It was very desvastating to see y’all lose in January:( I’ve been an Alabama fan since 2013 and I cheer y’all on all the way, I know you’ll have the players ready this year and i know that for a fact because of the type of coach you are. Your coaching style in my opinion is why I think your one of the best coaches in football, people in my opinion don’t give you a lot of credit, but I think your really great!! So something bad happened today and I was supposed to be able to go to the Alabama vs Duke game but my dad can’t get that day off from work and I really was so excited to see y’all play but know I won’t be able to:((. It’s been a dream of mine to see y’all play but I love all the way in South Carolina and I can’t even get the tickets to see that game. But besides that I just wanted to let you know I’m one of your biggest fans and you’ve inspired me so much, keep up your good work, and hopefully we when the natty this year and you get your 7th national title:)).

I wonder if anyone has considered going to the NFL rules on protecting the quarterback for college players.. And ,the blindside rules on unaware receivers getting helmet to helmet hits. I've seen it, catching the receivers totally unaware and knocking them out of the game. You've played two teams towards the end of the season that was a dirty hitting teams and they literally ended the career on your fabulous quarterback and receivers. Alabama, on the other hand, is the cleanest tackling team the game has ever seen. On a fun note, my wife and I play the song deacon blue when you win. And, we played it often last year. Go tide!
