Nick Saban, head football coach of the University of Alabama, is scheduled to speak at Tuesday, May 7 at the Eddie G. Robinson Museum on the campus of Grambling State University.
“We are excited to have Nick Saban on our campus as he’s a well respected coach across the nation,” Broderick Fobbs, GSU’s head football coach, told reporters.
Grambling State University’s Department of Athletics, alongside the Eddie G. Robinson Mu- seum, announced Saban’s speech as a continuation of the celebration of what would have been the 100th birthday for legendary GSU coach Eddie Robinson.
Saban led the Crimson Tide to their sixth SEC Championship and berth in the National Championship game, while being a two-time Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year recipient (2003 and 2008).
Saban took six teams to college football national championships as a coach.
