Saban is so much of a jerk I don't think it would work well with most players.
Regardless, I would take Gruden or Cowher. Both have shown that they suck at talent evaluation/drafting but are excellent at motivating millionaires, having balls, and knowing their X's and O's. These are the things that make a great HC in the NFL.
I like Gruden personality but he is a little to crazy for a coach, but he definately has the most passion for the game.
My choice would be Cowher
