Saban, Alabama Finalize Contract

Pending approval from the University of Alabama's Board of Trustees, Nick Saban could soon sign his Crimson Tide contract.

Bama athletic director Mal Moore released this statement Wednsday: "The contract for head football Coach Nick Saban has been sent to the Board of Trustees for approval. We worked together to complete this agreement even as we  proceeded with recruiting, Spring football practice and adjustments in the coaching staff, and we are pleased that it has been finalized."

Alabama made Saban college football's highest paid coach in January when Saban agreed to an 8-year contract worth more than $30-million.
