Obama Congratulates Coach Saban On Championship
President Barack Obama is congratulating University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban on another BCS championship, joking that "he and the Crimson Tide are beginning to make this a habit."
Alabama won its third championship during Obama's presidency on Monday night, defeating Notre Dame 42-14 in Miami.
Obama called Saban on Thursday afternoon and noted that it was the third time he'd made the congratulatory call to the coach.
The White House says Obama commended Saban "on the incredible organization he has built" and said he looks forward to congratulating the team in person at the White House.
