Is Nick Saban Going To The NFL?
Alabama head football coach Nick Saban is fresh off of winning the 2012-2013 BCS national championship as his Crimson Tide blew out the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 42-14 Monday night in Miami.
So, after winning 3 titles in the past 4 seasons at Alabama, is Saban getting bored and looking to the NFL for a better challenge?
Well, in his final press conference in South Beach, he attempted to put that issue to bed by further cementing his status as coach of the Crimson Tide. In this article, it says he went on to talk about how the college game is a lot easier to manage and how you can mold a team to fit what you want.
But is the lure of the NFL enough to bring him back to football's highest level? Remember, he was the head coach of the Miami Dolphins from 2005-2006 (he went 15-17 in his stint) in Miami) and spent some time as a Defensive Backs Coach in Houston as a member of the then-Oilers coaching staff from 1988-1989 and the Defensive Coordinator with the Cleveland Browns from 1991-1994. Saban said:
"I kind of learned through that [Miami Dolphins] experience that maybe this [college coaching] is where I belong, and I'm really happy and at peace with all that."
So when will the question of Nick Saban going to the NFL be put to rest? Probably never.
