In 2013, shortly after Alabama won the national football championship, The Crimson Tide Foundation purchased the 8,700 square foot home that Nick Saban has lived in since 2007 for $3.1 million. The big story here is that the Foundation purchase allows for Saban to live in the home free of charge and also pays the property taxes for as long as Saban wants.
While this is a common practice among schools for college presidents, it rarely happens for the football coach. Saban is a huge figure in Alabama and Alabama football.
