Alabama has won its fifth national championship since 2009 by outlasting SEC-rival Georgia in overtime.

Tua Tagovailoa threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith on the Crimson Tide's second play of OT to complete a 26-23 comeback victory over the Bulldogs in the CFP title game in Atlanta.

The freshman quarterback was sacked for a 16-yard loss on the previous play before sending Alabama to its 11th national championship.

In the NFL, the future Las Vegas Raiders will introduce Jon Gruden as the team's new head coach Tuesday in Alameda, California.

Sources reportedly told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gruden's contract will be for 10 years and will be worth about $100 million dollars, making him the highest paid coach in the NFL.

The 54-year-old has 11 years of head coaching experience.

In 11 seasons with the Raiders and Buccanneers, he recorded 95 wins and 81 losses, went five and four in the playoffs and won a Super Bowl in his first season with Tampa Bay.

However, Gruden has spent the last nine years in the broadcast booth as an NFL analyst.

He's been away from coaching for almost a decade, so how effective can he be?

News 3 takes a look at the coaching records of some NFL coaches who've followed the same path.
