TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama will unveil the statue of coach
Nick Saban before the spring game on April 16.

The statue has been in the works since the Crimson Tide won the
2009 national championship. Saban will join four other Alabama
coaches who received statues at the Walk of Champions plaza outside Bryant-Denny Stadium after leading teams to national titles.

The others are Wallace Wade, Frank Thomas, Bear Bryant and Gene
Stallings.

Athletic director Mal Moore said Friday the statue is "a
fitting tribute to the accomplishments of our entire football
program under his leadership."

Plaques will honor players and staff members from each of the
national title teams.

The ceremony will include Stallings and representatives of the
Wade, Thomas and Bryant families.
