Not content with national championships and #1 recruiting classes, Nick Saban is looking to open a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Irondale, AL.

Saban and his business partner's plans have been put on hold briefly, due to to a lawsuit from a nearby Benz dealership, claiming their plans has caused 'irreparable harm' to their business.

While Mercedes-Benz will not allow Saban's name to be on the dealership, his business partner assured that, "[y]ou'll get to see his smiling face on TV often," adding that the coach will frequently film new ads. I think I can speak for all of the internet when I say, those ads cannot come soon enough.
