TUSCOLOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's board of trustees are set to vote on Nick Saban's new contract.

The trustees' compensation committee has set a conference call for Tuesday afternoon and is expected to approve new deals for Saban and most of his staff. Trustees are also expected to approve and release terms of the contract for new offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.

Alabama announced a "long-term agreement" with Saban on Dec. 14, 2013 but hasn't released details. The new deal is expected to provide a substantial raise from the eight-year contract Saban received in March 2012 worth about $5.6 million annually.

Saban, who turns 63 in October, said at the time Alabama is "where I plan to end my coaching career."

He has led the Crimson Tide to three national championships in seven seasons.
