No college football coach has dominated the modern era like Nick Saban, who has been head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide since 2007. Bama fans were elated when Saban’s No. 3 Alabama (12-1) won the 2021 SEC Championship Game over No. 1 Georgia (12-1) as the Crimson Tide handed the Bulldogs their first loss of the season.

Saban led the LSU Tigers to the BCS National Championship in 2003 and the Alabama Crimson Tide to BCS and AP national championships in 2009, 2011, 2012, and College Football Playoff championships in 2015, 2017 and 2020. He has won seven national titles as a head coach, the most in college football history. He became the first coach in college football history to win a national championship with two different Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) schools since the inception of the AP Poll in 1936. Saban and Bear Bryant are the only coaches to win an SEC championship at two different schools. Saban's career record as a college head coach is 269–67–1.

In 2013, Saban was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. Saban has also coached four Heisman Trophy winners at Alabama: Mark Ingram (2009), Derrick Henry (2015), DeVonta Smith (2020), and Bryce Young (2021).
