After winning his sixth national title (5 with Alabama, 1 with LSU), Nick Saban has started to get calls again from the NFL. If we remember, last year after Alabama loss the national title to Clemson, some said Nick Saban got a call from New York to become the head coach of the New York Giants.

Now, that same call has started to come in.
Saban did get the opportunity to coach at the NFL level as a head coach before with the Miami Dolphins. He went 15-17 in the brief two years as the Dolphins head coach.
Nick has dominated college football since returning to college to coach the Alabama Crimson Tide. He has turned the Tide into a seemingly unstoppable football power. He is 127-20 at Alabama over the 10 years he has been there.

If Nick did decide to leave for New York, he would be leaving at the age of 66. Saban would also have to turn around a organization that is looking for a their future quarterback. Oh, lets not forget that he would have to deal with Odell Beckham Jr. Odell is a great talent, but could be a distraction that Nick Saban might not want to deal with.
Now that Nick Saban has won a 6th NCAA championship, will he knock on the Giants' back door again? … https://t.co/2Ukt0FgXpJ

Saban is an old school kind of coach, he like things in the right order; almost like his friend, Bill Belichick.
If Saban does decide to leave for the NFL, it would give college football a sign of relief that the Saban era is over.
