Alabama coach Nick Saban was named to Fortune’s World’s Greatest Leaders list Thursday following his fifth national title win and fourth at Alabama in January.

Saban comes in at No. 11 on the list and is the highest sports figure on the list. In a video accompanying a brief summary of this past season, Fortune’s assistant managing editor Brian O’Keefe compared Saban’s famous “Process” to how a CEO runs a business.

In nine years at Alabama, Saban has compiled a 100-18 record and four SEC championships.
