Nick Saban is an American college football coach and the current head coach of the University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team. Saban previously served as head coach of the National Football League's Miami Dolphins and three other NCAA universities: LSU, Michigan State, and Toledo. His career record as a college head coach is 177–59–1.

Saban's first foray into coaching was serendipitous. He has not planned to coach initially, but was made a graduate assistant at Kent State University while waiting for his wife to graduate. He then took Assistant Head Coaching jobs at several universities in Division 1-A, and worked in an assistant capacity at the NFL level for the Houston Oilers, and under Bill Belichick for the Cleveland Browns.

His first head coaching job was with the Toledo Rockets, beginning in 1989. After taking the Rockets to success, Saban left to become an assistant in the NFL (Cleveland), and when he returned to the NCAA in 1995, he took a job with the Michigan State Spartans, and lead them in the next years to the best winning season and highest ranking since 1965, in 1999. He abruptly left the team, taking a job at LSU, won the BCS National Title in 2003, and after a short spell as head coach of the Miami Dolphins of the NFL, returned to college to coach the Alabama Crimson Tide, winning the national title with the University in 2009, 2011, and 2012.

Nick Saban has a net worth of $30 million.
