For those of you who thought Nick Saban was going to be leaving Alabama and try his luck coaching again in the NFL, I have some very bad news for you and the rest of the SEC schools. Saban isn’t going anywhere for a while. Saban just signed a massive 8 years, $65 million deal.
Let’s check in with Twitter on this one.
Look out, college football.

Nick Saban's new contract extension will pay him $65 million. 50% of those earnings will go to his top recruits. #RollTide

Anyone that ever stepped foot in Tuscaloosa before 2007, and knows what Tuscaloosa looks like in 2017 knows that Nick Saban is underpaid.

What this means for Alabama fans is that Saban is probably going to win at least another four national championships by the time this contract extension is over with. At this point all anyone can really say is Roll Tide.
