Nick Saban is on an incredible roll at Alabama, and he’s unlikely to leave anytime soon. But you can’t fault the New York Jets — who fired their head coach and general manager Monday following a 4-12 season — if they at least take a glance at one of the best coaches in football today.
Saban has won three National Championships during his tenure at Alabama and lost more than two games just twice in eight seasons. He’ll coach the Tide in their New Year’s Day matchup with Ohio State as part of the College Football Playoffs.
Before coaching at Alabama, Saban spent two seasons with the Miami Dolphins. He finished his first season at 9-7, before concluding his sophomore campaign with a 6-10 record.
