and what will this do in your opinion to already crazy coaching salaries.

They said they want an answer by tomorrow night.

He's nuts not to.

He's had success in the college game, Bama is a big time program, and it's $40M

I say the appeal of winning a super bowl keeps him.

1. Wouldn't want to see him back in the SEC coaching against Ole Miss!

2. How many years does he have left on his contract? What would it say to other potential teams (nfl) if he were to leave early? Jump ship when he's finds something better instead of really wanting to be with the team for the long haul?

3. Alabama is a great Football team and program. But how many coachs have the run off since Bear? Too many. While alabama doesn't get the national media as some programs, it is high profile, the coach is constantly under scrutiny (moreso than most programs). It seems like a high stress job. If he has one bad season they'd be screaming to fire him and hire someone new.

Now Saban has had success at LSU and SEC opponent. I think they would give him some leeway (sp?) because of his past success but still.

I don't know if I would even though it is a great opportunity. High upside but low downside as well. Then again no nuts no blue chips!

I wish him luck in whatever he does except if he plays ole miss or the texans.

I dunno what's gonna happen, but in a way its kinda sweet revenge for the
colleges in their battles vs. the NFL.
Afterall, how many coachs have been induced to leave their college HC jobs
for an NFL job. And then there's all the college players that leave for the NFL
before they've complete their college eligibility.
Now maybe the colleges get some payback and out bid the NFL for one of its HCs ?

ABSOLUTELY HE WILL.

He'd be a fool not to.

1) He's a better college coach.

2) He gets 10 years JOB SECURITY.

3) $40 million.

Think about it... if the Dolphins miss the playoffs next year he's probably going to be canned, the NFL is so fickle with coaches... so why not take that deal?

If he returns for another season with Miami he will be on the hot seat. He may not get an offer like the Alabama one next season. I think he jumps ship.

nah, he's setup for a long time with huizinga. even if saban starts to REALLY suck after 4 years, he'll still be there. so 3 years is definitely not a possibility. no reason to think the team won't be improved next year anyway. should compete for the division.

I think he goes to 'Bama.
1) He IS a better college coach (like Steve Spurrier).
2) 10 years of job security (or, at least 10 years of pay) ain't nothing to laugh
about.
3) $40 mil speaks for itself.

*However, ask Glen Mason how fickle the college coaching scene is.

Heck yes. To paraphrase a recent headline "He would have 40 million reason to go to Bama".

If he does he better wear a helmet when Bama plays in Death Valley. It will be raining Crown bottles.

Unless he wants to prove something to himself about coaching in the league he takes the Bama job

If he goes to Alabama, I lose all respect I had for the guy. Is winning in the NFL too tough for him? So what exactly did he mean when he said "I have no interest in the Alabama job" if he takes their offer?

He will be telling Wayne Huizenga his decision at 10 am tomorrow. Everyone on ESPN tonite thinks he will be going to Alabama.
