Alabama football will be hosting its Clinic of Champions on April 7-9, and a star-studded group of coaches will be in attendance.
Along with Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban and his staff, Frank Beamer, Steve Spurrier, Tony Dungy and Bill Polian will be on hand to offer their expertise.

The clinic is an opportunity for coaches at various levels to hear from some of the game’s best. With the chance to hear from two NFL Hall of Famers (Dungy and Polian) and three of this century’s most prolific college football football minds (Saban, Spurrier and Beamer), it should be a fantastic opportunity.
Dungy, a former NFL head coach and player, is a two-time Super Bowl champion. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year and retired with a 139-69 head coaching record.
Now an ESPN analyst, Polian was a longtime NFL executive. While with the Colts, he and Dungy helped lead Indianapolis to a Super Bowl XLI victory.
Beamer, who retired after last season, served as Virginia Tech’s head coach from 1987 to 2015. Also a former Hokies cornerback, the 69-year-old led VT to 23 straight bowl appearances.
Another recent retiree, Spurrier won the 1996 national championship as Florida’s head coach and earned seven SEC Coach of the Year honors.
