    Can we please go ahead and give Nick Saban a LIFETIME contract?

    Please? It would take him out of the coaching carousel.
    This stuff with miles made me think of it.

    contracts dont mean anything in sports anymore. the opposing school would pay the termination fee of the contract to snag Saban

    A lifetime contract would not differ materially from what he has now.

    This.

    And with no buyout, it doesn't really matter. If he wants to go, he'll go.

    But he's not going.

    Essentially, he does. As does every other head coach.

    Why should we panic like lswho? Saban didn't shop himself just to get a raise. Hasn't yet and I seriously doubt he would.

    I haven't heard his name come up as a serious candidate for a job this year.
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.

    The Longhorn folks like to think if they park a dump truck full of cash in his driveway, he's theirs. I even heard a "reporter" on the radio think he might be able to be lured away. When the Cleveland Browns rumors started up a month ago a Tennessee friend of mine asked me why Saban would stay at Alabama if offered the coaching job there, insinuating that CNS would go if offered. People not fans of Alabama want and wish he would leave. I'm pretty objective about this sort of thing and from what I've seen from Coach Saban, he seems to be in his element and enjoying what he's doing. I think he's here until he retires for good.

    David, I'm not sure you understand how this contract works and how unique it really is.

    Dateline Miami:::::

    Mal Moore to Coach Saban = How much?
    Coach Saban to Mal = Total control, no questions asked by ANYBODY, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE.

    Mal to Coach Saban = Done. The plane's ready to take off.

    Any raise or extension would be set by Coach Saban first then rubber-stamped by the BOT.

    Nobody can offer him a better deal than he can.

    If he has a bad season, everyone will be ready to get rid of him...

    Not everyone. Me, for instance.

    "A long way," he said after being asked how far the Crimson Tide had come since Coach Nick Saban arrived three years ago. "I guess you could say it's the distance from Shreveport to Pasadena."
