Nick Saban likely to Stay at AlabamaFor several weeks now, we’ve been hearing Nick Saban’s name churn in the rumor mill for the Cleveland Browns head coaching job, even though Pat Shurmur hasn’t even been fired…yet. Saban’s wife, Terri told the media a couple of weeks ago, “Nick no longer feels the joy of winning.” Pretty bold statement from Nick’s other half.
To any extent, we can pretty much distinguish the rumors at this point, as we are hearing Saban is not only unlikely to take a job with Cleveland, but rather he’ll be staying put at Alabama for the foreseeable future.
Crimson Tide AD Mal Moore told ESPN Cleveland’s Tony Grossi, ”He’s expressed to me on several occasions … that he’s happy here. He feels very comfortable, and I believe him.”

For you Browns fans out there, its becoming increasingly likely Mike Lombardi will be the next Browns GM, which is why it had been thought Saban could be poached from ‘Bama, considering the two have worked together in the past. Grossi went on to claim there is “zero chance” Saban would work with his former colleague in “a thousand years” and that he’s leaning towards staying in Tuscaloosa for the time being. Lets not forget Moore and Saban agreed on a contract extension through 2020 after the Tide rolled over LSU in the National Championship Game last year. That extension made Saban the highest paid coach in the land at $5.6 million per season.
There you have it folks. As per usual, the media has made a whole lot of nothing out of this whole ordeal. At the end of the day, why would Saban leave Alabama anyway? He’s treated like the lion of the land there and already has a failed NFL experiment (Miami Dolphins) under his belt, so why try again? I can see the potential for him to eventually leave for another college program, but just not the NFL.

One of the worst (and sometimes best) things about sports talk radio is when the hosts open up the phone lines for all of the locals to rant and rave.

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron said that he was not going to the NFL following this season. And we thought we had heard Nick Saban say the same thing. Nevertheless, as the Crimson Tide returned to practice, and Saban returned to media accessibility, the subjects were rehashed.
