Kerwin Bell. He is the hottest name out there, at least on these boards.
If it happens, and Saban stays at Gumpville, I think it comes down to Franklin or Gundy. Shaw at Stanford would be a darkhorse.
They could also go the NFL route as well.
If Nick Saban were to leave Alabama....name the one job that he would take in college football. I think the only pinnacle job equal to Alabama is Texas and this is the only shot a coach will have to take that job for the next 5 or 6 years...... Money is not a factor one way or another.....every time Saban said I am not taking another job, he did....... Bama fans are threatening players after an 11-1 year, it will get worse if Auburn beats him twice...... Saban could never be accused of being loyal, so take that card out of the deck....... Saban likes a challenge, period, so I think he is ready to take on a new challenge. It's like when you play that video game to death and it becomes obsolete. You loved it when you started it, but now you are ready to take it to the video store for a trade-in. Alabama is that video game....
So my feeling is.....it is either Texas or the NFL if he ever leaves Bama. And maybe he will never leave, but I think he will..........
You didn't like the 2 points that SOW put up in that game?

And a stretch to eat it in instead of a golf cart. Man, I wish I had been walking past Urb on that golf cart. I would have yelled "Pardon me! Do you have any Grey Poupon?"
I didn't like it... I absolutely loved it.
Good reasoning. I don't think Saban would do the NFL though - he can recruit a talent advantage in CFB that he'll never have in the NFL. IMO, it's either Texas now, or he retires at Bama. Also, Austin is a nice destination - his wife might have some say on that front.
If Texas strikes out on Saban, Briles, and Sumlin, look out for Todd Graham from ASU. Texas already hired ASU's Athletic Director Patterson, and Graham is originally from Texas. And it's not like Graham has any loyalty after leaving Pitt after 1 year. Graham would take the job in a heartbeat. The question is, however, would the Texas fans accept Graham after only going 18-8 at ASU in two years and only winning the PAC-12 South this year while losing to Stanford in the conference championship game?
no one this year. Brown is back, farewell tour, tries for 9 wins to pass D. Royal as all time wins coach and UT starts the espionage for the next coach calmly and prudently.
Texas's rumored want list includes current NFL head coaches. Jim Harbaugh is supposedly one of the people they are interested in, although no idea what kind of money Texas would have to throw around to get him to leave the Niners job that he is secure in to come back to college.
Saban will be announced on Friday.
UT will not bring in Graham. They will get a BIG name coach. They are a Top 3 schools and will bring in a Top Proven coach not from the Pac 12. Sorry.
That's probably the smartest thing they could do right now.
Which might just rule it out.
ESPN radio indicated they have sources saying that Texas would has offered Saban 10 years @ $10M per year = $100 M total. 100% Guaranteed.
That's almost double what Saban is making now as the current highest paid coach in the NCAA. Harbaugh could command the same. I'm sure Bama is working on an extension for Saban.
I also heard they offered 1% of Longhorn Network in addition to the 10/100. Not sure if it's true though.
Depending on just how much input Patterson has in the hire, Graham could very well be in the mix. He hired him at ASU and worked with him there for two years. I wonder what he really thinks of Graham? It is time for Graham to bolt for another job.
Look for Butch Davis' name in the running for the Texas job, and if not there wherever the opening is that
is created by the new HC at Texas
I know it's rumored that Saban is prone to bad business deals, but I can't imagine he would take that contract only to turn around supplement 1% of the longhorn network losses
Yosemite Sam. He already has the right hat.
Harbaugh and Shaw are both from Stanford (PAC-12), and their names have been bandied about for Texas. And yes, the Horns will go after the big names first; but there is no guarantee any of them will say yes. So Texas needs a fall-back position if they strike out with the guys on the A list. And you have to think Graham is on the B list. Texas ties, and worked for the new Texas AD for two years. And Graham will leave for Austin quicker than he can text his ASu players goodbye if offered the job.
