Six of his seven national titles came during a dynastic reign with The University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide.

This season ended with defeat in the College Football Playoff Semifinal to eventual champions Michigan.

Saban said on the team’s website that Alabama has been an extraordinary place to wife Terry and him.

He said they have enjoyed every minute of our 17 years being the head coach at Alabama. He also enjoyed becoming a part of the Tuscaloosa community.

The coach said he believes it is not just about how many games they won and lost, but it’s about the legacy and how they went about it.

He said they would always consider Alabama their home.

Although Saban had two, mostly disappointing seasons as head coach of the Miami Dolphins before joining Alabama, he spent most of his career in the college game.

Before taking charge of Louisiana State University and winning the national title in 2003, Nick Saban had made his name Michigan State.

With 123 players, Alabama became a production line for NFL players.

Alabama, in this year’s NFL playoffs, products feature on 13 of the 14 teams with 36 former Crimson Tide players on the active roster.

Saban won 11 championships in the extremely challenging Southeastern Conference.
