Construction is already underway on a new Nick Saban-funded house in Alberta, Ala.
The Alabama coach and his wife, Terry, sponsored their 16th Habitat for Humanity project soon after his Crimson Tide captured the school’s 16th national title, per WBRC.com‘s Terri Brewer.
The couple became involved with the organization following a deadly tornado tore through the Tuscaloosa area nearly five years ago. They initially funded 13 new houses for displaced families, then added two more when the Tide won back-to-back national titles in 2011 and 2012.
“Alls (sic) I do is raise the money and show up for events like this,” Saban told AL.com‘s Stephen Dethrage in 2013. “There’s a lot of other folks who really work hard, including Mrs. Terry and all the people who work for (Saban’s charity) Nick’s Kids that make things like this possible. I want to make sure that all those people receive the credit and accolades and appreciation that we have for what they do, what they give, for their time and for making these things possible.”
Volunteer workers expect the newest house to be finished by early April.
