Alabama coach Nick Saban is not looking to get out of coaching any time soon, despite speculation that he could retire, reports ESPN’s Chris Low.
Saban, 64, has won four national championships with Alabama since becoming the head coach in 2007. The coach has compiled an overall record of 191–60–1 in his college coaching career.
Saban also claimed that rival coaches are bringing up the topic of his age and possible retirement to recruits.
“My philosophy is that I’m going to be here for as long as I feel like I can be effective, impact the players, help them be more successful in life and continue to have a successful program,” Saban said.
