Nick Saban, Alabama get shoutout in new Netflix series 'Space Force'
There’s a new comedy series on Netflix called “Space Force,” starring Steve Carell. It centers on those (fully hypothetical) people who are assigned to get the Space Force military branch started.
Well, even in this fictional universe, Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide are still big players.
As you can see in the clip below, shared by ESPN’s Holly Rowe on Twitter, one potential new Space Force recruit wants to make more money, citing Saban’s salary before yelling “Roll Tide!”:

Despite the person in the clip saying he heard Saban makes $7 million a year, the Alabama coach actually made just under $9 million in 2019, per the USA TODAY database.
Still, a cool shoutout for Saban and the Alabama program.
