Nick Saban

Nick Saban became the head coach at the University of Alabama in 2007. Between his first and second seasons at the helm, Saban produced the largest win increase from year one to year two in school history, as the Tide went from a seven-win team in 2007 to 12 wins in 2008. Since then, Alabama has compiled a record of 84-11 (.884) and have captured three national championships (2009, 2011, 2012). In 2014, the Tide reached the 10-win milestone for the seventh consecutive season and won 11 or more games for the fourth straight year. With their 12-1 record and 24th SEC Championship, Alabama earned the top seed in the first College Football Playoff in the 2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl. For his efforts, Saban was awarded the Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year.
