People Think Photos of Nick Saban Vacationing in Europe Prove He's Slowing Down

Being a head coach of a college football team is not only a full-time job and then some during the season, it also requires a lot of work during the offseason, including endless recruiting.

So when a college head football coach can get away for a bit, where should they go to relax and unwind?

For Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban, his choice is apparently Italy.

Twitter user "@chaseg30" posted a picture of the seven-time national championship coach there sporting an Alabama baby blue zip-up.

In a separate photo posted by "@TDAlabamaMag," Saban is seen posing for a picture with a fan with the caption, "You never know who you might run into at the Spanish Steps," accompanied by a "face screaming" emoji.

And, yes, he's wearing yet another Alabama jacket, but this time in gray.

While Saban — a wildly successful college coach — just wants to spend some time relaxing before he enters yet another season of coaching (which he's been doing since 1973), it didn't take long for replies to mention Georgia Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart recruiting the top player in the country.

Dylan Raiola, the top quarterback in the country, recently committed to Georgia.

However, we prefer the stance of this tweet:

Let Saban relax, people. This will be his 50th — yes, 50th — season coaching football in some capacity.
