The University of Alabama announced today that Nick Saban has agreed to a long term contract extension.  The new agreement will extend Saban's contract to eight years and keep him in Tuscaloosa through the 2024 season.  The base salary and talent fee will remain the same but there will be a signing bonus of $4 million with an additional $4 million incentive spread out over the years of the contract.

Nice move on Alabama's part!

Other coaches can't use "Saban won't be there" when talking to high school recruits now.

One of the reasons for the extension!

Saban's first contract with Alabama was a 8 year deal for $32 million.  Saban's new 8 year, $65 million deal will pay an average of $8.2 million a year (plus incentives).  As it stands contractually, Saban is set to coach until age 73.  According to Alabama records that run through 2009, Saban's been paid $48,061,973 in the past seven-plus years.  Working the entirety of this contract would push him well over the $100 million mark for what would be 17 years at Alabama.

Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys...coaching pays more!

I've heard over and over that Nick Saban is a hard man to work for. He's very demanding of everyone in the program...especially assistant coaches. Even with his "all in" attitude, assistants from all over the country beg to work under him. One, because they learn to be a better coach and two, they get paid well for their work.

Here are Alabama assistant coaches salaries for 2017. This does not include incentives/bonuses they get for bowl games, SEC titles, national titles etc..

Jeremy Pruitt, defensive coordinator, $1.300,000
Brian Daboll, offensive coordinator, $1.200,000
Tosh Lupoi, linebackers, $950,000*
Mike Locksley, wide receivers, $600,000
Scott Cochran, strength & conditioning, $535,000
Burton Burns, running backs, $490,000
Derrick Ansley, defensive backs, $405,000
Brent Key, offensive line, $400,000
Joe Pannunzio, tight ends, $375,000
Karl Dunbar, defensive line, $275,000**

*Star recruiter one of the best in the country.
**Being paid under another contract.  Will make $575,000 2018.

Rule # 1...you don't work under Saban unless you can recruit. Period!

After a spring scrimmage, Saban went off on a reporter who suggested  Saban wanted to run the ball more with new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.  At this point, it's somewhat unclear what the offensive game plan is at Alabama.  There was frustration from fans about the Crimson Tide passing more than usual.  However, Daboll comes from the New England Patriots organization, one that obviously passes plenty.  Seeing what Saban and Daboll run out against Florida State opening week will be fascinating.

The thing with Saban and a lot of other coaches is that they can get there college in trouble and on probation and leave and they will make just as much money at there next stop as they are right now

Better yet Gordie, why don't you enlighten the forum why he is a BAD coach.  You don't even have to mention the five National Championships.  Yeah, that's the ticket...can't wait for your evaluation.

CNN is reporting that Nick Saban will leave Alabama and become Trumps choice for FBI chief.

No confirmation as usual by CNN.

CNN also reports that the University of Alabama is about to fire Nick Saban because he supports Trump.

No confirmation as usual by CNN.
