Nick Saban has no timeline on how much longer he'll coach


There have been a lot of rumors and stories about Alabama head coach Nick Saban and his future with the school. Particularly, could he leave to go coach the University of Texas. Saban said he was too old to go and rebuild a program, which leads to the question, “how much longer will he coach?

“I really don’t know,” Saban said, via ESPN. “I feel like as long as I enjoy what I’m doing.

“I’m happy with what I’m doing and I feel like I can make a contribution to the young people, and they respond to do things the right way and is actually benefiting them to help them be more successful in their life. As long as I’m healthy and can do that and I’m happy doing it, then I’m going to do it.”

Saban is under contract till 2019.

“I can’t really put a timetable on that,” he said during the interview. “I’ve said this before, though, I know that whenever I don’t do it — because I’ve been a part of a team since I was 10 years old, whether it was Little League or Pop Warner football, playing something all the time and I’ve been involved in coaching for almost 40 years.

“So I know it’s going to be difficult not to do it. But as long as I feel good about it and enjoy doing it and the players respond the way they should … then there’s a lot of positive self-gratification in it. And we’re going to continue to do it.”
