Nick Saban politely tells NFL teams inquiring about him to 'f--- off'

Nick Saban politely tells NFL teams inquiring about him to 'f--- off'

Nick Saban is probably staying at Alabama.

Nick Saban has no real incentive to leave Alabama, but you can't knock NFL teams for trying.

According to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, a team official told him he believes "every team with an opening has reached out to Nick Saban." The thought process is understandable considering the coach has lost 19 games in 10 seasons (six coming in the first year alone) since joining the Tide.

But is Saban even interested in a return to coaching an NFL team? 


"All of us were told to f--k off," the team official told B/R, "but in a very polite and respectful manner."

Saban gave coaching in the NFL a try from 2005-2006 with the Dolphins, compiling a 15-17 record. Considering his lack of success in the NFL and how he's built a dynasty at Alabama, it sure seems as if the coach is comfortable remaining in the college ranks.
