Think Nick Saban is considering retirement soon? You might be way wrong.
ESPN’s Chris Low published an interesting tweet Tuesday night after a visit with the Alabama coach. The whole message is confirmation of what we have seen from Saban throughout the season. With the Crimson Tide fresh off a third consecutive SEC title and two victories from a second consecutive national championship, it appears Saban remains passionate about his work.
Visited with Nick Saban today, and for rivals hoping he's nearing the finish line, his football pilot light is burning as brightly as ever.

It’s interesting to wonder how much longer Saban has left. He’s 65 years old, and he’s in his 10th season at Alabama. It’s fair to guess that Saban will be able to roam the Crimson Tide’s sideline as long as he wants.
After all, he has earned a reputation as one of the best college football coaches ever.
It stands to reason that Alabama’s machine will keep chugging along as long as Saban is at the controls. Alabama has won no fewer than 10 games in a single season each year since 2008. In recent falls, the program has remained a fixture within the national championship discussion.
Low’s tweet should serve as good news for Alabama fans who hope the good times aren’t about to end soon.
