Nick Saban is an Alabama lifer

The conversation comes up every offseason. Multiple NFL jobs open up, and one name is always at the top. Alabama coach Nick Saban is always rumored to return to the NFL; he had a one-year stint with the Miami Dolphins before joining Alabama. He sometimes is rumored to leave for other college football jobs, with the most recent being Texas a couple of years back. Saban always has quashed these rumors, however. As more years pass, it’s becoming clearer that Saban will stay at Alabama until his career is over.
