Coach Smart strikes me as being very loyal to and appreciative of Coach Saban. I really couldn't see him taking the Auburn job based on that alone. Now if and when the Georgia job comes open or maybe another SEC job thats a completely different thing.
Auburn would never have given what Coach Smart would have demanded to "rebuild" their program and leave the palace. It was never going to happen, they just went through the motions.

I'm just glad he's still here.
I wonder if we had lost Saturday and we weren't going for another national championship if he'd have thought harder about taking another job.
I really don't think it will take him that long to accomplish his goal.
If Kirby hangs around he's going to be a very youthful coach with an incredible opportunity. Somehow I think Kirby knows that.
Saban doesn't look 60! I don't think he is the type that will whither on the vine. He wants to influence these kids as long as possible with the Process and leave with some life to live in retirement.
“ The Crimson Tide of Alabama” Now that has a majestic ring to it!
