Nick Saban to the Cleveland Browns’ rumors have been swirling like a tornado. According to some reports, an offer upwards of $100 million could be put on the table, and that kind of money is hard for anyone to turn down.
Trent Richardson, current rookie running back for the Cleveland Browns and former Crimson Tide star, recently spoke out on the rumors:
“I can’t see him coming to the NFL,” Richardson said Wednesday. “I would be very shocked.”
“How can you get tired of winning?” Richardson asked. “He’s got so much going there. He has no reason to leave. He gets what he needs and he treats his program like the NFL (anyway). He makes sure his players are prepared for the game and prepared for the next level when the time comes.”
“I don’t believe it,” Richardson said. “Rumors are rumors. I don’t buy into it and that’s one thing he taught me to do — not buy into rumors.”
“I can see him staying at Alabama,” Richardson said, “and retiring at Alabama.”
Despite Richardson’s confidence in the fact that Saban will stay at Bama, one can only wonder what’s left for the coach to accomplish in the collegiate ranks.
If Saban and the Crimson Tide knock off Notre Dame on Jan. 7 in Miami, the legendary coach will have won his fourth BCS Championship (3 with Alabama, 1 LSU).
What are your thoughts on Saban’s future, do you think he will make the jump? Sound off below!
