Executive summary: Head Coach, Alabama Crimson Tide

Two days after his Crimson Tide's 21-14 loss to Louisiana-Monroe on 17 November 2007, Coach Nick Saban tried to look at the bright side by comparing the game to the 11 September 2001 attacks on America: "Changes in history usually occur after some kind of catastrophic event," he said. "It may be 9/11, which sort of changed the spirit of America relative to catastrophic events. Pearl Harbor kind of got us ready for World War II, and that was a catastrophic event."

As of 2012, college football's highest-paid coach, at $5.3M per year.
