I may be off base here but the heart and soul of Nick Saban is recruiting, developing one-on-one relationships with players and watching them progress as players and individuals then succeed either at the next level or in life in general after they graduate. There is no way in hell he trades that for the NFL and what that entails relative to coach player relationships at that level. I just don't see it happening. I believe both Nick and Terry Saban are vested in both the University and the community.
