When Nick Saban was not in the office on May 2, he probably had no idea that his private room would be used for a marriage proposal. But that’s exactly what happened.
A young man named Drew Clayton pulled some strings and set up a marriage proposal from inside the Alabama coach’s office for his current fiancee, Kayla Posey, who worked for the football program during her time at Bama.
According to AL.com, Clayton arranged the proposal through some of Posey’s friends in the football office. They helped him hide in the private bathroom inside the coach’s office while Posey was out to lunch. They also replaced Saban’s 2012 BCS National Championship Ring with the engagement ring.
When Posey returned from lunch, she was instructed to clean some of Saban’s rings in preparation for a visit from a very important guest. She was scheduled to give four tours that day and was told another one had been added to the schedule.
As you can see in the hidden camera video set up by Posey’s pals, the young lady was cleaning off the rings when she came across her engagement ring … and she was shocked and confused. That’s when Clayton emerged from the bathroom and got down on a knee to propose.
And how’s this for a detail that should not be overlooked: Clayton says he found Saban’s stash of snacks and snagged one of the coach’s famous Oatmeal Creme Pies. That was easily the best part of the story.
