Details of contract extension for Nate Oats released

Before Alabama’s quarterfinal matchup in the SEC Tournament last Friday it was released that Crimson Tide head coach Nate Oats was in the midst of finalizing an extension with the university. On Monday, the details of the contract were released.

Along with an annual salary increase, Oats now has a massive 18 million dollar buyout, the largest in the country according to athletic director Greg Byrne.

Oats is now under contract through the 2030 season with his final annual salary exceeding 7.5 million.

Oats is now among the most compensated head coaches in the country and is locked down with the Tide for the foreseeable future.

Our friend Nick Kelly of the Tuscaloosa News released a series of posts on X, formerly Twitter, with the details of the contract.
