Nick Saban doesn’t need any extra motivation to coach the next three games as if Alabama’s spot in the BCS Championship Game depended on them.
Saban wouldn’t need extra motivation to pull stomach muscles if he were coaching in the Class 1A playoffs.
But he has incentives just the same.
They’re written into his contract.

If the Crimson Tide’s dream season continues to its conclusion, Saban will add $600,000 to this year’s annual compensation of $3.75 million.
