    He's just won his 3rd National Championship in 4 years, and has won 4 in 8 years of coaching. That's nothing short of incredible.

    I know Jason Garrett's job is likely safe and that this probably won't happen, but it doesn't hurt to entertain the idea.

    His name is coming up a lot now for potential NFL coaching positions. Not sure if he's even going to leave Bama, cause he has a really good thing going there for him, but if he does indeed decide to make the leap again, would you like him as the Cowboys next Head Coach? Do you think Jerry would even consider it?

    I know his first stint in the NFL wasn't successful with Miami, but if he showed interest in the NFL, I think Jerry might at least entertain the idea.

    John McKay won three in college and Lou Holtz was no slouch and they were as absolute bad as it gets in the NFL.

    I actually thought Saban would translate really well in the NFL, he reminded me a lot of Jimmy in intensity, but it didn't happen. Maybe he's Pete Carroll who was horrible his first time around. Who knows...

    I think the bottom line though is Saban would never play nice with Jerry.

    One of the best college coaches ever.

    Wrong forum though.

    I'll never forgive this guy for gifting Jason Garrett his first NFL job. Rot in hell Dirty Nick.

    That's my main concern. I think the idea of turning around America's team might lure him a bit, but ultimately having to be bossed around by Jerry would quickly ruin that idea. Wouldn't mind him here though. Like you said with Carroll, I think he'd be better around the 2nd time. At this point I just want someone other than JG.

    I like him coming in as the GM or whatever title it would take for Jerry to let him do that job

    Seems like he'd be a great fit and could be a great asset to Garrett

    Jerry would never let it happen, but I can dream a little

    He's a guy who needs complete personel control of a franchise, that's the only way a guy like him can succeed in the NFL IMO, like Jimmy had with us. I don't know what situation Saban had with Miami but I don't think he had complete control, I may be wrong.

    Brent Musberger made one good point during the game tonight when he took 5 seconds to stop making excuses for Notre Dame.

    Why would Saban go to the NFL and get one first round pick per year when he can stay at Bama and get 5+ first round picks per year?

    My younger sister could have won a title with this Bama team. It is all about recruiting at the college level. That far outweighs coaching IMO.

    The NFL has a salary cap, Alabama doesn't.

    You can work around the QB position in college by just being more talented at every other position and pushing lesser teams around. In the NFL, there is no work around for having Gus Ferrotte and Joey Harrington as your QBs.

    He ain't leaving, but he has a ton of NFL coaching experience and is part of the Parcells/Belichick tree.

    He's an NFL coach in College. He failed at Miami because he never had a QB.

    I think, like with any coach, that if he had a QB he would easily have success in the NFL.
