TUSCALOOSA, Ala. ( – A man with a lot of ambition proposed to his soon-to-be wife with the mantra ‘go big, or go home’.

Drew Clayton, a Mississippi State alum, knew he wanted to do something special to surprise his now-fiancée, Decatur native Kayla Posey, who was finishing up graduate school at the University of Alabama.

In the end, only one place in the world made sense for Clayton to ask the most important question of his life.

Nick Saban’s office.

Luckily, Posey had a few connections, having worked in the Alabama Football office for years while in school and eventually working her way up to being one of Saban’s student assistants.

Clayton swapped out the 2012 BCS National Championship ring on Saban’s coffee table with Kayla’s custom-made diamond and then retreated to the only place in the office where a man could reasonably hide.

Nick Saban’s private bathroom.

Posey’s co-workers convinced her that a “very important” guest was coming in for a visit and that she needed to shine the rings in Saban’s office as soon as possible.

Clayton emerged from the bathroom, dropped to one knee and asked Posey to be his wife.
