Alabama's Nick Saban Is College Football's Highest Paid Head Coach

Alabama’s Nick Saban Is College Football’s Highest Paid Head Coach

Head Coach Nick Saban is staying put at back-to-back reigning champion Alabama, perhaps for the rest of his career. He has signed a multi-year contract extension with the university. We don’t know the number of years yet, but the speculation is pointing to an instant $1-2 million raise in 2014.

Saban already is the highest paid college football head coach in the nation, raking in $5.65 million in 2013, just ahead of TexasMack Brown. In 2014, he’ll become the sports’ first $7 million man.
