Nah, Saban will retire at Alabama. His daughter even goes to school at Alabama.
There is no "next level" for him anywhere else. He's in the best program in the country, and can't get what he gets at Alabama from any other
school. Not to say there aren't good programs, but Alabama is the only school in the country that will match his passion for perfection.
He always moves up in his changes.
Toledo, to Defensive Cordinator in the NFL.
Back to head coach at Michigan St - a step up from Toledo for sure, and a step up from a Cleveland NFL team as well.
Then he goes from there, to LSU. LSU isn't bad, but still it's not a premier job in college football. He goes to Miami, doesn't care for it
and ends up in Alabama, a premiere program.
He can create a legacy in Alabama. He can become a legend. To restore a program back to the status it was under the Bear, and to possible do even
better is something that would make him a Legend. Everyone knows the Bear, Alabama fan or not.
The last guy who thought he could do better than Alabama was Bill Curry. Now there is a good joke.
No other school really offers anything close to those kinds of things. Notre Dame is about the only school that even comes close.
You're right about the shiny thing, but I don't see what could possibly be more shinny.
