There have been rumors that Alabama coach Nick Saban is interested in taking another shot with the NFL, with the likeliest candidate being the Cleveland Browns.Blog Photo - Alabama Football: Reports Say Nick Saban Staying With Tide

Those rumors are quickly deteriorating, as it seems the three-time national- championship-winning coach is staying put in Tuscaloosa.

Numerous reports have included the same information: Saban has told more than one NFL organization thanks, but no thanks.

This is, of course, very big news for a program that is participating in its third title game in four seasons. With a win against Notre Dame on Monday, he will have built a fledging dynasty.

Since joining Alabama midseason in 2007, he has compiled a 62-13 record, brought home three SEC West conference titles, enjoyed a 4-1 bowl record and has become well-known for developing NFL players.

This was all following an inheritance of a program that had just one winning season over its last four years, dating back to 2003.

At 61 years of age, Saban may be ready to settle down and keep a secure job to prepare for retirement (whenever that be). If he accepts a job at the next level, there’s no saying how long his leash would be.

However, like his stint with the Miami Dolphins, we cannot truly keep Saban out of the NFL picture until he announces so in public.

Or until every coaching vacancy is filled.
