Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

Nick Saban’s championship machine brought a $45.9 million profit to the university

 

Alabama’s football program was responsible for approximately 62 percent of the university’s total athletics revenue in 2017.

The athletics department reported $174.3 million in revenue in 2017 and $15.6 million in profit, with the football department accounting for $108.2 million in revenue and $45.9 million in profit.

 

 

Across the entire department, revenue was up by slightly more than $10 million. But as the dollars pour in, the athletes that generate that revenue remain woefully undercompensated.
