When a coaching staff has an undefeated season that ends with a national title, you can be sure contract extensions and/or raises are likely to follow. When that coaching staff includes Nick Saban and Alabama, it’s not a matter of if, but when.
On Monday, the Alabama board of trustees unanimously approved new extensions for Saban and several of the other head coaches/assistant coaches in Tuscaloosa, according to Michael Casagrande with AL.com.
That new, extended contract for Saban will run through February of 2029. Over eight years, it will total $84.8 million, which comes out to $10.6 million per season. That’s the one we’ve known about for a while now, but there were several other notable extensions approved as well.
- Patrick Murphy, Softball
- Kristy Curry, Women’s Basketball
- Brad Bohannon, Baseball
- Dana Duckworth, Gymnastics
- George Husack, Men’s Tennis
- Jenn Mainz, Women’s Tennis
- Mic Potter, Golf
- Jay Seawell, Golf
- Dan Waters, Track and Field/Cross Country
- Glenn Putyrae, Rowing
Antoine Pettway, an assistant coach under Nate Oats, also received an extension on Monday. New Alabama tight ends/special teams coordinator Drew Svoboda’s two-year deal was also approved, according to Casagrande.
If you notice one impactful name missing from the list above, don’t fret. Oats signed an extension back in February.
