Talk starts of Saban statue in T-Town

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama athletics director Mal Moore is ready to erect a statue of Nick Saban outside the football stadium now that the coach has won a national championship with the Crimson Tide.

The Tuscaloosa News quoted Moore on Friday as saying he will recommend to university President Robert Witt that the university place a statue of Saban outside Bryant-Denny Stadium in an area called the "Walk of Champions." Moore said those talks will begin immediately.

The plaza already has statues of other coaches who've won national championships at 'Bama.

Some fans already are on the idea of adding a Saban statue. After the BCS win over Texas, someone put a banner bearing the coach's name across the area already set aside for the next statue.
