Report: Saban contacted for every NFL coaching vacancy

Photo of Report: Saban contacted for every NFL coaching vacancy

Nick Saban's previous run as an NFL head coach yielded less than impressive results, but that apparently didn't stop teams from contacting the Alabama frontman this offseason.

A source told Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman that every pro team with a head coaching vacancy reached out to the five-time national champion or his representatives this offseason to gauge his interest in a return to the NFL, but were met with an emphatic "no thanks."

The six teams in the market for a new head coach were the Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Chargers, Los Angeles Rams, and San Francisco 49ers.

Saban posted a 15-17 record in his two seasons with the Miami Dolphins from 2005-06, before leaving suddenly to take the job with Alabama. The 65-year-old is entering his 11th season with the Crimson Tide, by far the longest stop on his coaching resume.
