Nick Saban has earned another honor.
On Monday, the Alabama coach was named the Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week after the Crimson Tide routed Tennessee 49-10 last Saturday at Neyland Stadium.
As mentioned in a release, the award honors “the football coach whose program embodies the award’s three pillars of scholarship, leadership and integrity, while also having success on the playing field during the previous week.”
“Under Coach Saban’s leadership, Alabama football has become one of the most consistent and successful programs in the country during the past decade,” Jim Terry, Chairman of the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation, said in a statement. “After this weekend’s convincing victory over No. 9 Tennessee, Coach Saban has once again put his team in a position to compete for an SEC and National Championship. With his success, both on and off the field, as well as his community and charitable work, you can see why Coach Saban was an easy pick for this week.”
With the victory last Saturday, Alabama improved to 7-0. The Crimson Tide host Texas A&M on Saturday in a matchup between unbeaten teams at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The winner will earn the inside track to claiming the SEC West title.
