Saban Statue To Be Unveiled At A-Day
In addition, plaques will honor Alabama players and staff members from each of the national title teams.
"In keeping with our custom of honoring our national championship head football coaches, we are pleased and proud to unveil the statue of Coach Nick Saban to add to our Walk of Champions at Bryant-Denny Stadium," said Moore. "By leading our team to Alabama's 13th football championship in 2009, Coach Saban earned his place among the legends we recognize. This is an outstanding testament to his work at Alabama, and a fitting tribute to the accomplishments of our entire football program under his leadership."
The ceremony will include Coach Stallings and representatives of the Wade, Thomas and Bryant families.
Like previous years, the permanent captains will be honored at Denny Chimes at 12:15 p.m. At 12:40 p.m., the team will participate in the Walk of Champions like a regular home game and the unveiling will take place at approximately 12:40 p.m. Members of this year's current team and former players from the 2009 team will be on hand for the ceremony.
A complete schedule of events for A-Day will be released early next week.
