Rumors have been circulating for weeks that Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban will be retiring at the conclusion of the 2021-22 season.

It was leaked that Saban held a meeting with his team the day before Christmas to let him know of his decision (Read More Here), and that has been confirmed by sources close to the team.

Of course, Saban has yet to make any sort of announcement, although he did noticeably duck a number of questions on the subject in several media appearances this week.


The uncertainty is now over; Hiring and firing coaches in the world of college football isn’t simply a matter of making announcements; the NCAA is notified before any coach begins or ends their tenure.  And the University of Alabama did, in fact, file said paperwork on December 26th according to CFPInsider, who released a copy of the documents Thursday afternoon.

While Saban will no doubt remain quiet on the subject until after the National Championship Game (as made clear by his playful dodging of the question this week), We now know that aside from the publicity angle, Saban’s December 26th Tweet really did tell us all we needed to know.
