The contract will see Saban, who is entering his 15th year with Alabama, be paid $8.425 million this season, and will include annual pay increases.
“Our family calls Tuscaloosa and the state of Alabama home, it’s a place where our roots now run deep. This agreement gives us the chance to continue to impact the lives of the young men and their families who choose to play football and get an education at Alabama,” he said.
