Nick Saban is the greatest college football coach of all-time. The 70-year-old has seven national championship rings and shows no signs of slowing down.
While Saban’s all-time collegiate coaching record of 269–67–1 is impressive, his legacy is felt well beyond wins and losses. While playing at Alabama may not be for everyone, those who choose to play, learn and grow under Saban’s tutelage rarely fail to become succesful.
Over the course of the last 15 years in Tuscaloosa, Saban has produced 113 NFL draftees. During that same period of time, the Crimson Tide alumni have made an astonishing amount of money in the National Football League.
A lot of that can be contributed directly to Saban. Or, at the very least, what he has built at Alabama.
To get a grasp on the legacy he has left behind, Saban’s greatness is exemplified by Commanders linebacker Jonathan Allen. Allen played at Alabama from 2013 through 2016, won a national championship and was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
Despite the fact that he has not played for Saban in six years, he still references his teachings. When asked about how to learn to live with the outcomes of a situation when you know that the process is good, Allen spoke about what he learned from Saban.
Allen has played for three different coaches in the NFL. But, even after all of these years, he goes back to Saban.

It just goes to show. Wins and losses are a dime a dozen, but when you create a culture that is greater than yourself, success follows closely behind and carries well beyond the present.
