ESPN: Nick Saban to Retire

Nick Saban is retiring.

Sources told ESPN’s Chris Low that Saban, one of the greatest college football coaches of all time, is stepping down as coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide. He who won six national titles at Alabama.

Saban, 72, just completed his 17th season at Alabama, which ended in a loss to eventual national champion Michigan in the Rose Bowl.

“I’ve always said that if you’re thinking about retirement, you’re probably already retired, and I’m not there yet,” Saban told ESPN in November.

Here’s how the Tuscaloosa News reported the shocking announcement.

The four words Alabama football fans have never wanted to hear ― and every other college football supporter has badly sought for years ― are real. No one can escape time, but as Saban continued to win for 17 seasons and added national championships across eras, he almost seemed like he might be the exception. The question of when he would finally call it a career always permeated college football discourse, yet Saban kept going.

Saban went 292-71-1 in 28 seasons as a college head coach, a career that included seven national championships, 12 conference titles (11 SEC, 1 MAC) and 19 bowl game wins. He also served as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, going 15-17 in two seasons (2005-06).
