JACKSON , Tenn.- One of the top college football coaches in the country was in the Hub City, Monday night.

More than 1,500 people packed the Carl Perkins Civic Center to hear Alabama's Nick Saban speak. Saban has won three out of the last four national championships at the University of Alabama.

He also won a national championship as LSU head coach in 2003.
Saban spoke about how important it is to raise money for college scholarships.

"What we really try to pride ourselves in is to set an example that somebody else wants to emulate in terms of how we serve our community and how we give back and what we do to help young people because that's really why we coach," said Nick Saban, Alabama head football coach.

All of the proceeds will go to funding scholarships for Union University.
