A man hid in Nick Saban's bathroom to propose to his girlfriend

Friday September 12th, 2014

Drew Clayton's girlfriend works as an assistant to Alabama head coach Nick Saban, and Clayton decided there was no better place to propose to her than among the trophies and rings of the coach's private office.

According to AL.com, Kayla Posey's co-workers set up a camera in the office, then lured her out to lunch while Clayton set the ring in the place reserved for the coach's 2012 BCS championship ring. He then hid in Saban's private bathroom while waiting for her to return

"For 30 minutes, my stomach is churning and I'm waiting on Kayla to get back," he said. "It was a very well-kept bathroom, as we would expect from such a perfect coach."

He also took a peek at Saban's snack stash, which included several boxes of Oatmeal Creme Pies.

"I was kind of hungry, so I figured he wouldn't miss one," he said.

Saban was out of town, so he didn't participate in the proposal scheme. There's no word yet if he's upset that one of his Oatmeal Creme Pies is gone.
