Number Two: He has family local in the area

The Sabans welcomed a second grandchild on April 27th as their daughter gave birth to a son, James Nickolas Setas. The baby weighed in at 9 lbs, 12 oz, so he already looks like he’ll be a part of the 2038 recruiting class for the Tide.

Saban’s daughter and new grandchild are local, living in the Birmingham area. As many know, Nick Saban is infatuated with his grandchildren and obviously wouldn’t want to be far from them. He spoke affectionately of his granddaughter born in 2013 to his son saying she was one of few children not afraid of him.

As evidenced by his daughter’s recent tweet, the whole family seems to enjoy the area and doesn’t show any plans of leaving any time soon.
