Now that Alabama Crimson Tide's coach Nick Saban has officially reached legendary status with his fourth National Championship, it makes sense that he would become part of the NFL coaching rumors. The Cleveland Browns are said to be very interested in his services, but will he bail on Alabama?
It is a very realistic possibility that Nick Saban will in fact leave Alabama. He has absolutely nothing left to prove in college football, but everything to prove in the National Football League. Remember, he tried his hand in the NFL a few years ago with the Miami Dolphins, but he failed miserably and quickly ran back to the college game.

As it stands right now, Nick Saban will always be remembered as a great college football coach who could not cut it with the big boys in the National Football League. For a guy who values his legacy as much as Saban does, we have a hard time believing that he wants to be known as just a college football coach.
But the question is, would be interested in the Cleveland Browns?
Throughout the years, many college football coaches have tried to turn around the Browns and many of them have fallen flat on their faces. The Cleveland Browns have horrible ownership and they just do not seem to know how to build a good foundation for success. The only way Nick Saban would even consider trying to coach in the NFL again is if Cleveland would be willing to give him full control of football operations. And we just don't see that happening.
We fully expect Nick Saban to remain with the Alabama Crimson Tide for at least one more season. However, if he is lucky enough to win a fifth National Championship, we definitely believe he will bail on college football and give the NFL one more shot.
