Tuscaloosa love story

Alabama head coach Nick Saban is a man of many rings. His four national title rings sit prominently on display in cases in his office.

Kayla Posey is a graduate student at Alabama who works with Saban in the athletic department.

In May, Posey's boyfriend, Drew Clayton, developed a plan with Posey's co-workers on the athletic staff to finagle his way into Saban's office with Posey and pop the question.

Clayton hid in the personal bathroom in Saban's office and Posey's engagement ring hid in place of Alabama's 2012 National Championship ring in the coach's display case.

When Posey was sent in to "shine the rings so they could be put on display for a last minute tour," she was seen on a hidden camera placed inside the coach's office in order to capture the proposal, frantically wiping any speck of dust off the display case with her red dress. When she opened the case to get to the rings. She paused. Tried to catch her breath. And her boyfriend emerged from the adjoining room.

"Are you serious?" was all Posey could muster before Clayton got one knee and proposed. She said yes.
