In a report from CBSSports.com, Alabama head coach Nick Saban is turning NFL teams down.
Here’s a portion of the report:
NFL teams that have been inquiring about Alabama coach Nick Saban in recent days and weeks have been told in no uncertain terms: thanks, but no thanks.
At least so far. Some franchises with vacancies have sent feelers toward Saban and the Alabama camp regarding his seriousness about returning to the NFL. He has told these inquirers that he isn’t coming back.
It’s unclear which teams have contacted Alabama. Several league sources say most, if not all of them, have reached out to Saban in some unofficial capacity, and Saban or his camp has been extremely clear about his intentions.
Although nothing will be final until all NFL head coaching vacancies are filled or Saban publicly says he staying, it does look like he’ll coach Alabama for another year, if there was ever any doubt. Saban has never stayed at any job more than five years, and he’s in his sixth year at Alabama now.
I’ve been in the minority thinking he would make the jump, at least in the future at some point, but I never really thought it would be after this season.
Do coaches like Saban ever get tired of dominating college football with so much parity?
