Alabama Coach Nick Saban has been spotted smiling. All it took was his birthday, Halloween and his entire team singing to him – all at once.

Cornerback Daniel Geddes uploaded a video of the affair to his Facebook page – enjoy:

In Part I, I took a look at each coach’s backgrounds and how their career’s led them to the point where each skyrocketed into superstardom. LSU hired Nick Saban in November 1999 and USC named Pete Carroll their head man a year later in 2000 and neither were hired under the fanfare that their success should have afforded to them.
