Alabama Coach Nick Saban Retiring

15 years as the head coach of Alabama. 24 losses in those 15 years, and 6 of those came in his first year. Six National Championships. It’s not hyperbole to say that no one has ever done this like Nick Saban. Not Woody. Not Bo. Not even, at the risk of ‘Bama fans being offended, like that other ‘Bama coach. The one with the cool hat.

But all things eventually end, and now is apparently the time for Nick Saban’s dynasty to end all college football dynasties to do so.

Saban reportedly informed his Crimson Tide players first at a team meeting Friday morning, but news like that is hard to contain in today’s cyber driven world.

It’s safe to say we won’t hear from the coach until his now-final season concludes; with the ‘Tide a double digit favorite over the Cinderella Cincinnati Bearcats and likely to be so against either Georgia or Michigan that leaves us to wait a few weeks. But social media is already exploding with well wishes and congratulations from players past and present and figures across the sports world.

Rumors have circulated around the now 70 year old coach riding off into the sunset for years now, but he has kept going… and kept winning, but as said… even the greatest of them have to close the book eventually.

And what a book it has been. Nick Saban has become to college football what Jordan was to basketball, Brady was to the NFL, what Gretzky was to hockey. Love ‘Bama or hate them, it almost seems inevitable… and appropriate that this of all coaches rides off into that sunset with one last title at his back.
