Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban is preparing for the BCS National Championship game in Miami, Florida but that hasn’t stopped reporters from hounding him about a possible return to the NFL. Despite publicly denying NFL rumors on multiple occasions, Saban’s name continues to be linked to jobs at the next level.
In his latest comments to the media, Saban made it clearer than ever that he does not plan on returning to the NFL.
“I don’t have any unfinished business in the NFL,” Saban said to during Saturday’s media day, per Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune. “It’s not something I’m concerned about. It’s not even something I want to do.”
Saban went on to add that he is happy with the path Alabama is on and there is really nothing to talk about when it comes to a return to the NFL.
To be fair, Saban is the same guy that said, “I am not going to be the Alabama head coach” just two weeks before becoming Alabama’s head coach, so it is easy to see why reporters continue to ask Saban about his plans for the future.
That said, Saban seems happier than ever at Alabama and you can never get tired of winning. He’s got a great gig with the Crimson Tide and he’d be silly to give it up in order to coach a lower level NFL team.
