Nick Saban and Urban Meyer on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame in 2024

Nick Saban and Urban Meyer are eligible for election to the College Football Hall of Fame for the first time. The two former head coaches will be on the ballot in 2024 alongside several former players.

The National Football Foundation released its full ballot on Monday, including 77 players and nine head coaches from the FBS and 101 players and 34 coaches from the divisional levels.

Among the better-known players on the ballot is former Pittsburgh defensive end Aaron Donald, who retired from the NFL this year after a decade with the Rams.

Also on the ballot are Mark Ingram, the former Alabama running back who was considered the school's first Heisman Trophy winner, and former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o.

Former Cal wide receiver DeSean Jackson is also up for selection.

Saban retired at the end of last season after serving 17 seasons as head coach at Alabama, where he established arguably the most dominant dynasty in college football history.

He previously won six national championships with the Crimson Tide and a seventh with LSU, making him the NCAA record holder for all-time head coaches with seven national titles.

Meyer won three national championships during his career, including two with Florida and a third with Ohio State in the first College Football Playoff.

The class for the College Football Hall of Fame will be announced in January.
