Alabama head coach and seven-time national champion Nick Saban is retiring, ESPN and The Athletic reported Wednesday.
Saban, 72, won six of those titles in his 17 years at Alabama, tying the school mark set by Bear Bryant. He finishes with a career mark of 297-71-1, 206 of those at Alabama.
He led the Crimson Tide to 11 Southeastern Conference championships.
Saban’s Alabama teams missed the College Football Playoff just twice in 10 years of its existence.
Saban began his head coaching career at Toledo in 1990. He coached Michigan State from 1995-1999 before accepting the head-coaching job at LSU in 2000. He won his first national title in 2003 at LSU.
He took the Alabama job after a short and failed stint as head coach of the Miami Dolphins.
