Nick Saban is not interested in the Giants’ head coaching job, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Former Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians opened the door to speculation that Saban might have interest in a return to the NFL, even though Saban has not indicated he would leave Alabama.

“It wouldn’t surprise me,” Arians said Tuesday on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. “There’s a job he covets, and it just happens to be open. But he’s got a dynasty right now, [and] another dynamite recruiting class. Why he would do it? I don’t know, but it would not shock me if he did.”

Arians added the Giants are appealing “because they’re the New York Giants. When we grew up, they were the thing.”

Despite Saban’s 15-17 record in two seasons with the Dolphins, he would have his pick of jobs if he ever decides to seek a new challenge. And he would excite any fan base as much as Jon Gruden has Raiders Nation, which is why it makes sense for owners to at least put in a call to Saban’s agent, Jimmy Sexton.

  1. Saban would excite ALMOST any fan base. There is one fan base that is quite happy with their current head coach and wouldn’t trade him for anyone.

    He’s not going to the pats

  3. If Belichick or Saban coveted the New Jersey Giants head coaching job, they would have already been there.

    I don’t see either of them giving up control, and having to report to Dave Gettleman.

  4. Bruce Ariens throws out a harmless opinion and it becomes a story. Saban is good at what he does…he’s not built for the modern day NFL though. Landon Collins already said he wouldnt want to play for him again and Im sure he’s not the only former Alabama to feel that way. The Saban style of coaching probably has a very finite expiration date once you start playing for him.

  5. He’s not even entertaining the thought unless it’s a team with a top 5 Quarterback.

    If Belichek ever leaves New England, or if Green Bay fires McCarthy, I think he would seriously consider leaving.

  6. Why does ne1 think he be a winner ? haven’t we seen what happens to great college coaches in the NFL ? whole different animal. they were super stupid firing TC.

  7. Saban is best coach in the country. Winning multiple championships with different teams he built. As for the Miami situation, to finish a game under .500 is remarkable. No other coach could had did what he did with that over the hill roster he was given and barely any cap space.

  8. I think the feeling would have to be mutual, and I am pretty sure the Giants don’t think it’s an upgrade from Coughlin 70’s for Saban who is 66.. Its like Eli, he is closer to the end than the beginning.

  9. Saban is so overrated.

    Current he gets ANY player he wants in the world. All high school Football players would give there left nut to go to Saban’s team. It is stacked year after year in his favor and he still has issues winning some games.

    But in the NFL, you can’t every best player. You have to actually coach your players. He sucked big time in Miami. He doesn’t know how to coach grown men.

  10. Why would saban want a team where Eli Mae Apple is on the team and that bleach tipped woman wannabee pouts on the sidelines when he doesn’t get his way?

    Saban is a jerk, but he is not stupid.

  11. I won’t believe it until I hear him say; “I won’t be the coach of the NY Giants.” Oh wait…

    I was just about to say that before latinlover11 beat me to it.

  12. He will NEVER be forgiven in Miami for what he did! I can just see the BIG APPLE taking a bite out of him!
