While coaches around college football have been publicly taking shots at Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban — mainly because of jealousy — Saban is showing that he is far from any of those devilish comparisons that he has received. Saban was recently in the news for the auction of his $10.95 million property that sits right on the edge of Lake Burton in Clayton, Georgia and now Saban is auctioning off a more appealing package for fans.
According to a report from al.com, Saban will be auctioning off a package that includes Alabama football tickets, sideline passes and a tour of his office in a package that is linked to the sale of his nearly $11 million home. The package will go to the highest bidder, with money going to Saban’s charity, Nick’s Kids.
Here are full details of the charity auction:
The charity sale included four tickets to Saban’s private family box for a Southeastern Conference home game during the upcoming season; a parking pass; pre-game sidelines passes; and tours of Bryant-Denny Stadium, the Crimson Tide locker room and Saban’s office.
“It seems, other than creating some buzz for people looking at his property for sale, the benefits of all of this goes to Nick’s Kids,” said director of the Alabama Ethics Commission Jim Sumner.
Saban’s charity has already raised more than $1 million for relief work to help after the 2011 tornado in Tuscaloosa.
Coaches around college football may not like Saban, but this goes to show he is a much better man off of the field than he has been getting credit for lately.
