BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - University of Alabama coach Nick Saban is offering Crimson Tide football tickets, sideline passes and an office tour in a charity auction linked to the sale of his multimillion-dollar lake home.

The company selling Saban's north Georgia home, Concierge Auctions, says fans can register online to win the ticket package.

The tickets and other perks will be sold to the highest bidder before the sale of Saban's lake home, initially priced at $11 million. The home auction is scheduled for Thursday.

All proceeds from the football package auction will go to Saban's charity, Nick's Kids.

The director of the Alabama Ethics Commission, Jim Sumner, says the football package may generate buzz for the home sale, but it doesn't appear to be a problem under state law.
