Or does the head coach of Alabama stay and try for a 6th? Nick Saban has done about everything a college coach can wish to accomplish. So, wouldn’t he consider coming back into the NFL to wrap his career up? If coach Saban is given the freedom and the tools, I believe he would be another coaching star in the NFL.
“In September, Alabama coach Nick Saban dropped a pretty strong hint about the prerequisites for a return to the NFL when he said that, if the Dolphins had signed quarterback Drew Brees in 2006, Saban would still be coaching there. While unlikely that Saban would be in Miami 10 years later, Brees and the coach who signed him, Sean Payton, have spent the last decade together.” – Reported by Mike Florio
