It's official. Nick Saban has reached legendary status.
Work has started on a bronze statue of the Alabama coach, and officials are hoping to have the project completed by April 17, the date of the spring game.
Saban's wife, Terry, is among several people who will have input on the statue's appearance, according to Corey Beltz, project manager for the company that is handling the project.
"We are sculpting clay right now and we have pretty good direction on what they want for the look of it," Beltz said.
