CBS reported Notre Dame is after Saban.....Is this for real?
According to the national media, almost everyone with an open coaching position is after Saban. Yesterday, Spencer Tillman said something about Saban being the top candidate for the Bears, and Colts head coaching jobs, and that he is a much better NFL coach than NCAA.
It doesn't matter though, the amount of money he would make is almost the same, and according to him, He and his wife love it here. If LSU wants to keep him they can afford to give him a small raise to offset the difference he would make at the NFL level.
This is a problem LSU will have as long as Saban is here. Guys like Steve Spurrier have been turning down NFL jobs for so long, that their names are never mentioned like Saban's. The difference is, that he has been there before.
I don't think Tiger fans should worry until an offer is actually made, until that time, Nick is a Louisianian.
