Is Nick Saban close to retiring? One football analyst weighs in

He's one of the oldest head coaches in college football.

Nick Saban is 65 years old, but the Alabama coach has shown no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Saban has Alabama in the College Football Playoffs for the third straight season, and ESPN's Chris Low said he didn't think Saban was near the finish line.

Alabama will likely have the No. 1 recruiting class in the country again for 2017, and the Tide return several starters next season. They will be a contender — and likely the favorite — every year under Saban, and he has a good chance to finish his career as the most decorated college football coach of all time whenever he decides to retire.

Besides, Saban is a relative pup compared to two of his head coach counterparts, Kansas State's Bill Snyder (77) and Ohio's Frank Solich (72).  He is, however, just one of 14 head coaches age of 60 or older.

Saban has won five national championships, and his team is the overwhelming favorite to win again this season. He is 118-18 in 10 seasons at Alabama, and it appears as if he's not close to being finished adding to his stellar resume.

Alabama faces Washington in the first College Football semifinal on Saturday, Dec. 31. If they win, they'll take on the winner of Clemson and Ohio State.
