In an interview with ESPN’s Chris Low, Alabama head coach Nick Saban, who turns 65 in October, revealed that programs are using his age against him in their recruiting pitches...
quote:Why not, he won't be there forever.
“I’m not looking to get out. I’m really not, even though I know that’s going to start being talked about more now,” said Saban, who’s entering his 10th season at Alabama. “What I have noticed is that it’s the first time people are starting to say to recruits, ‘He won’t be there the whole time you’re there,’ because of my age. Does that really impact your ability to stay good? I don’t know. But if it did, it would make you say, ‘Well, what’s up with this?’ My philosophy is that I’m going to be here for as long as I feel like I can be effective, impact the players, help them be more successful in life and continue to have a successful program.”
