…And Nick Saban should not consider the Browns. There’s a “report” from a local Cleveland radio station that the Cleveland Browns are interested in making Nick Saban their next head coach. (ed. note: the report was refuted by 92.3 The Fan, but the rumor has taken off to the point that all the radio stations are talking about Saban) That is a stupid idea. The Browns are the arguably the worst franchise in the National Football League. Browns fans hope this will change with their new owner and president, and for their sake, I hope it does. The worst thing new management can do is hire a college coach.
How many college coaches have succeeded in the NFL? The answer is not many. If the Browns are interested in unsuccessful NFL coaches there are plenty available who are coaching in the NFL. Also, I am pretty sure Nick Saban tried the whole NFL thing and it did not work out well for him at all. Many will argue he was set up to fail in Miami, but according to his bank account he did not fail at all. If he leaves Alabama for Cleveland it will be to simply pad his bank account.
Random Cleveland radio stations, Browns fans, Haslam, Banner, Heckert, and whomever else do yourselves a favor and find someone who has the passion and desire to coach in the NFL. Saban has a contract with Alabama through 2019, he is also 60 years old. If Saban were to join the Browns he most likely would want to blow the entire franchise up and start over again. By the time his players and system would be in place Saban would be nearly 65 years old. Browns fans, are you willing to wait another five years to see if Saban is the right coach?
Nick, you have proven at three schools you do your best coaching at the college level. In college, you have total control over everything; in the NFL you have control over nothing. I am not stupid enough to think that you will stay in Tuscaloosa until 2019, although I hope you will. Should you get the desire to leave and take on another challenge in the next few years there are plenty of places in college football that would be far better for you and your family than the NFL, much less Cleveland, Ohio.
If you make the choice to leave Alabama I cannot see you going to another Southeastern Conference school, but you might. If you chose not to here are a few places where you can go and succeed with a lot less stress and make millions.
Nick, you have a much better chance at success in the college football than you will in the NFL. I know, you want a Super Bowl ring and who doesn’t? Really though, no one that counts will be mad if you bounce from college to college winning championships where you can have some control. Soon you will be able to collect retirement, so why go to Cleveland and deal with the garbage that is known as the Browns? Hell, if you really want to coach in the NFL go somewhere warm…like Miami—oh wait, you did that and it worked out wonderfully, right?
P.S. Browns fans: Nick Saban will want to change the uniforms and helmets.
