Alabama coach Nick Saban has already left his mark on the football program. So much so, they've already built a statue of him.

The University of Alabama unveiled the statue in front of Bryant-Denny Stadium as part of a celebration leading up to Saturday's spring game. The unveiling comes 15 months after Alabama beat Texas for the BCS national championship.
