Interesting. Apparently there are some rumors floating around that Haslam has okay'd going after Nick Saban to coach the Cleveland Browns.
That would be interesting if true.
Hahaha. Both helping his NFL team and his NCAA allegiance.
Can't see it happening, but fun to talk about.
I would prefer a personal services contract to work for Haslam, then Jimbo could send Saban to work anywhere he wanted him.
Apparently reported by a Cleveland radio station:
did you get this from the national enquirer? Because if so you really busted my bubble

I.could see it
Except that he already coached in the NFL and it didn't end too well. Don't think it is going to happen unless Haslam spends all the money many folks here want him to spend on Gruden.
I think there is more smoke to the Texas situation but I could see either
Apparently Mike Keith thinks that Saban would go back for 2 teams and Cleveland is one of them
Saban is 62, makes several million at Bama and has a well-oiled machine in place. I think he is closer to thinking about his post-coaching days than going for another job. On the other hand, one could argue that he has nothing left to prove at Bama - or in college football in general - and may want one last challenge before calling it quits, so who knows?
This is Blue Smoke but, fun to think about.
now that's funny..
btw, Aresenal blows! Chelsea owns. Not too late to jump on the bandwagon my friend. Plenty of room aboard.
Two good points. +1
1 Corinthians 16:13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
Wishful thinking iyam.
So who is saying it's not?
Even if he did leave I'm not sure it would change anything. He built that well oil machine at LSU that Les Miles is running
Haha yea I was an arsenal fan as a kid since my dad was in the army and their logo was a cannon.
I really enjoy watching Spurs play tho. Bale, Dempsey, Lloris, Lennon, Huddlestone. Walker. I just love that team.
Arsene Wenger has me about fed up
Oh it means something...humor me for a second.
Saban-goes to the Browns
Dooley- is retained as coach
Saban-struggles because he now has less talent as opposed to Bama where he always had superior talent
Dooley-still our HC
Dooley-contract has expired...what to do
Saban-with Haslam in his ear and seeing the writing on the wall has things to consider. Decides he wants to be the first coach to ever take 3 SEC schools to a NC.
Now that's wishful thinking for you!
Who for? Kentucky? Now, that would be a story-ending career.
This would make me a very happy man.
Ego....it is 100% about ego. These guys want to prove they can succeed at the highest level which is the NFL. If Saban can get his ideal situation I think he makes another run at it. Saban is a control freak which is why he didn't last in Miami. Haslam is smart enough to give Saban enough control to make him happy and Haslam wants to win. I can see this. Both Haslam and Saban have an extreme desire to win and win big...that is a good match.
Bama writer had it right...it is about legacy. And right now his NFL legacy is he can't cut the cheese in that league. Again, all about the ego.
If it's not about the money, then why is he the highest paid coach in College Football?
You are right, it's about ego and money. Bammers would love to think it's about Bama but it's not. Bama is simply the vehicle that took him to the top of college football. I think a few more NFL owners will make a run at him and we'll see where his ego takes him.
Just for clarity's sake - based on what he has accomplished he has earned that ego and salary. He has walked the walk.
I'm betting that Haslam would love to have Cowher coach the Browns (where he played and started his coaching career) but I'm not sure Cowher would come back and coach a Steelers rival. It will be a splash hire, that's for sure.
