Nick Saban Ranked Top College Football Coach

Alabama coach Nick Saban is the best coach in college football, according to an essay by’s Bryan Fischer.

Saban tops the list of 14 coaches, which includes such successes as Ohio State’s Urban Meyer, Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops, and Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher.

The essay points to Saban’s 170-57-1 career record and 37 NFL draft picks over the last five years as part of a strong resume.

As noted in the feature:

Not much needs to be said about Saban, who rightfully earns the title of the highest-paid coach in college thanks to his 79-15 record over the past seven years with the Crimson Tide. He has four national titles to his name, and although he had a rocky first year in Tuscaloosa and a few questionable losses, he’s turned Alabama into an NFL factory that has been to BCS games five of the last six seasons.

Notably, it’s Saban’s success in putting players into the NFL that stands out to the league’s official website. That reputation for turning Alabama into a pro football training ground has been a major part of the Crimson Tide’s recruiting success in the Saban era.
