Alabama’s Saban answers the NFL question
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – After Alabama’s BCS Championship win over Notre Dame Monday night, head coach Nick Saban is fielding a lot of questions, including a common one he said he would like to go away.
Reporters asked about players, recruiting, his championship rings, and then, the one on many sports fans’ minds…
Is Saban interested in going back to the NFL? Were teams calling him Tuesday?
“How many times do you think I’ve been asked this question,” Saban said. “And I’ve put it to rest and you continue to ask it. So I’ll put it to rest again. I think somewhere along the line you have to choose. You learn from the experiences of the past.”
Saban coached the Miami Dolphins in 2004 and 2005 before coming to Alabama.
He expressed frustration with the draft, salary caps, players and other hurdles.
“So, no matter how many times I say that, ya’ll don’t believe it, so I don’t know why I keep talking about it,” Saban said.
