Bruce Arians wouldn't be surprised if Nick Saban returned to the NFL

Despite some rumors that swirled on Tuesday morning, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports that Alabama's Nick Saban is not interested in the New York Giants' vacant head coaching position. While these comments are drawing headlines, any talk of the Alabama legend jumping back into the pro ranks should be counted only as speculation at this juncture.

Nick Saban is riding high right now, having just won his sixth national championship (fifth with Alabama).

"It just happens to be open", Arians told Colin Cowherd on FS1.

Nick Saban's first foray into the National Football League as a head coach did not go well. He was the defensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns from 1991 to 1994 and was the Miami Dolphins head coach from 2005-06. "But he's got a dynasty right now".

Arians, who has never coached with Saban but has been in the coaching circles with him for over four decades, confirmed the one job he was referring to was with the team that had the first vacancy this season. Saban's program continues to land top-tier recruiting classes and have made the College Football Playoff in each of the new tournament's four seasons of existence. Why he would do it, I don't know. "And when we grew up they were the thing". Actor and comedian Tom Arnold, who has personal ties to co-owner Steve Tisch, sent the Giants community into a frenzy in October 2016, when he said boxing promoter Bob Arum called the Giants about the opening on Saban's behalf mere hours before McAdoo inked his deal on January 14.

"It wouldn't surprise me". It just happens to be open. There also have been rumblings - publicly denied by the Patriots parties involved - that Bill Belichick could be interested in the Giants' job.

During those brief negotiations two years ago, Saban reportedly wanted $10 million per season which would now match newly-hired Raiders coach Jon Gruden as the highest annually paid head coach in the NFL.

If the Giants were to hire him they would reportedly need to pay $26.9 million to buy out Saban from his contract with Alabama before they even begin their own contract negotiations.
