It's hard to buy a gift for the man who has everything. And Nick Saban is certainly that man.

The Alabama head coach brings in a whopping $6.9 million before bonuses and has made it clear that when he's not whipping his team into shape, he enjoys nothing more than a quiet afternoon on the lake. So what's a person to get for one of the 'World's Greatest Leaders'?

During a news conference this week, days before the Crimson Tide's game at LSU, the 65-year-old Saban revealed the one birthday gift he's received so far.

"I really only got really one," He answered. "It was one of those things where you push the button and it says 'That's bullshit.' That's the only one I got."

"So I don't know if somebody's trying to tell me something or what," Saban continued as the room filled with laughter.


Saban's Halloween birthday has fallen around the time of the LSU rivalry since the coach landed at Alabama. The Tide have gone 7-3 against the Tigers since Saban took over, leading the coach to suspect he may get more use out of his gift at home than he does at the office.

"They told me that I couldn't take it home," Saban said. "I might need it at home more than I need it here."
