Video: The making of Nick Saban's statue

Publish date:

Nick’s statue goes up on Saturday in Tuscaloosa prior to the Alabama spring game.

Having won the 2009 national championship, Saban will be the fourth coach with a bronze statue outside Byrant-Denny Stadium next to the Walk of Champions.

Saban, Bear Bryant, Gene Stallings, Wallace Wade, and Frank Thomas have all led the Crimson Tide to a national championship.

Considering the awful circumstances surrounding the oak trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn, we'll bet Bama security will have a close eye on the statues for the immediate future.

Saban's statue was created by a truly gifted undergraduate student named Jeremy Davis. Davis' work from start to finish was captured on film.
