Nicholas Lou "Nick" Saban (born October 31, 1951) is the head coach of the University of Alabama's Crimson Tide football team. Saban has previously served as head coach of the National Football League's Miami Dolphins and three other NCAA universities: LSU, Michigan State and Toledo. His eight-year contract for a total of $32 million made him one of the highest paid college football coaches in the United States at the time. He appeared on the September 1, 2008 cover of Forbes magazine as "The Most Powerful Coach in Sports". Saban's career record as a collegiate head coach is 134–53–1.
Saban led LSU to the 2003 BCS National Championship, and Alabama to the 2009 BCS and AP National Championship, making him the second coach in college football history to win a national championship with two different FBS schools. Saban and Paul "Bear" Bryant are the only coaches to win an SEC championship at two different schools.
Saban was an assistant coach at Kent State, Syracuse, West Virginia, Ohio State, Navy and Michigan State in NCAA Division I-A, and with the Houston Oilers and Cleveland Browns in the National Football League. Saban is considered part of the Bill Belichick coaching tree, having worked under him at Cleveland.
