Saban Statue Unveiling

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama says it will
unveil in August a bronze statue of Nick Saban, the coach who led
the Crimson Tide to the national championship last season.

The bronze statue will stand in the Walk of Champions plaza at
Bryant-Denny Stadium.

An exact date has not been set for the unveiling. Alabama opens
its football season Sept. 4 season against San Jose State.

The event also will serve as a dedication of the stadium's south
end zone expansion, which will add more luxury skyboxes and
increase seating to more than 100,000.

Alabama's four previous national title-winning coaches - Wallace
Wade, Frank Thomas, Paul W. "Bear" Bryant and Gene Stallings -
are all commemorated with statues in the plaza area outside the
stadium.
