Nick Saban Signs New Deal With Alabama Crimson Tide
If you're a fan of LSU football, I have bad news for you. Nick Saban has signed a new contract with the Alabama Crimson Tide that runs through 2022.
Tiger fans once "loved" Saban for bringing a national championship to Baton Rouge in 2003.
Many labeled him a "turncoat' for leaving to accept a position with the Miami Dolphins of the NFL, then returning to the college game with conference rival Alabama. Saban has since brought three championships to Tuscaloosa, making him and Bear Bryant the only only coaches in history to win national championships with 2 different SEC teams.
Yahoo Sports reports the deal will pay Saban 55.2 million dollars. He now makes more money than Super Bowl winning coaches Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the New York Giants' Tom Coughlin.
