Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide got denied of their National Championship bid when it lost in crazy fashion to Auburn. So up until recently, Saban had to mourn at not having a third consecutive championship. This head coach is basically living the struggle.
Saban may not have cracked a smile on this recent news, but it should lighten up his spirits a little bit. ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit reported the multi-championship winning coach has agreed to a new deal with Alabama:

Just talked to Coach Saban. He is very excited about the new deal and looking forward to a busy recruiting weekend in Tuscaloosa!— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) December 14, 2013
This probably shouldn't come as a surprise to many, but it's still a good thing to get the formalities out of the way as the program seeks to reclaim No. 1 in the country.
