Alabama head football coach Nick Saban appears ready to become a car dealership owner. The question for some fans is, “Why?”

As reported Tuesday, Saban has acknowledged publicly in the past that selling cars is a dream of his:

“Every car dealer I know wants to be a coach,” Nick Saban said in a January speech at the American Football Coaches Association convention. “I always wanted to be a car dealer.”

The famous football mind appears ready to jump in with Mercedes-Benz and is reportedly planning to open a new dealership in Irondale with a partner.

A legal challenge could derail that plan though. According to, on Monday attorneys for Hoover’s Crown Automobiles filed notice of intent to subpoena Saban in an ongoing lawsuit:

“Attorneys for the Hoover dealership filed the suit in December arguing plans for the new dealership had derailed a plan to sell Crown Automobile causing the dealership to sustain “immediate and irreparable harm.”
