    Nick Saban is 67, looks good for 67, Bama is his last rodeo, and why the hell would you leave that for anything else?

    Not just that. Nick's age is also a factor. Since Chuck Noll took over, the average age for a Steelers coach beginning their coaching career here is around 35. Nick's age is way too advanced for that.


    Better yet, why would Nick leave for the NFL?! Best to become the athletic director for Alabama. Would be an easy transition for him.

    We can hope that the Steelers make him an offer he can't refuse.

    Why would Nick Saban want the Steeler job.
    1 he already makes more than MT
    2' He is a God in Al. SEC
    3. He doesn't have to put up with BS players, if one gets out of line
    he has another 5 star recruit waiting in the wings,
    4 Nick Saban ain't going anywhere.

    I'd rather go after Lincoln Riley, if we were going to go the college HC route

    I would like to see how he turns around the Nebraska program first. They were beating CU pretty good in the first half, then lost the game with a bad second half AT HOME!!

    And I'm not sure what he sees in Adrian Martinez as QB, I know he's only a soph so we'll see. Not athletic enough to be a running QB imo. And his first instinct is to run.

    Kingsbury's success or lack thereof over the next few years is going to have a big influence on whether offensive college coaches get a shot in the NFL. Chip Kelly, Steve Spurrier, Dennis Erickson, and Bobby Petrino were all offensive geniuses in college that completely flamed out in the NFL. (That doesn't even include defensive minded guys like Saban and Butch Davis that also failed.) If Kingsbury can buck that trend then we're going to see some offensive minds get hired by the NFL.
