    I think he would opt for the San Diego job first. I know I would if I were him. Besides, I like the idea of Joe Vitt as HC next season.

    8 mil a year might be too much to walk a way from. Yes, he won in Tampa with Dungy's team beating his old team. Then had a losing season the next and got fired because the team went down hill evey season after. That's why I don't get it that he is so highly sought after. He is awesome on MNF but as a coach, I have my doubts.

    have to agree with you there...I think his schtick wears thin on the NFL millionaire, but I think that wide eyed collegians eat that stuff up, take a look at the successful CFB coaches, they are masters at firing up their overmatched squads, and they are tough to beat at recruiting time...have heard many a story of how Barry Switzer was a tough act to beat once he was in the living room of a prospect,same goes for Saban

    I hear old St Nick is going back to the Browns where he was once an assistent to Bill Belichik. This time as their HC.

    Cowherd predicted Saban will be a pro coach within a couple of years. Based it on an interview Saban's wife gave stating that the wins weren't as fun anymore or something like that. Now that would throw the SEC world for a loop.

    I predict the Bearsssssss will have an opening for a HC next season.
    As of next week they will have fallen out of contention for the Norris Division title, and likely out of playoff contention altogether.

    That Tampa team was 9-7 when Dungy left and who did he face in that SB but the team he built in Oakland. I have to give credit to anyone who can win in Oakland, we'd be happy with him in MN, can't see him ever going back.

    What about them there New England Patriots. Sorry my Texas friends but your Texans got dismantled last night.
    I really thought the outcome would have been much closer.
    Don't underestimate the coaching genius of Belechek.
    He really likes those SEC players doesn't he!!
