Nick Saban not interested in coaching the New York Giants

Nick Saban not interested in coaching the New York Giants

The Wilks interview satisfied the NFL's Rooney Rule, which requires teams to interview minority candidates for head coaching jobs.

With that in mind, Rece Davis of ESPN caught up with the head coach about his future and what is to come. The crux of the article is that the working relationship between these three titans of the sport might not be feasible beyond the conclusion of this season.

"Because they're the New York Giants", he said.

And for someone who is nearly always tight-lipped with the media, he has directed toward his former organization in recent years. Post sources say Saban isn't interested in the Giants head coaching job.

Back in October 2016, after the Giants had already hired McAdoo to replace two-time Super Bowl champion coach Tom Coughlin, comedian Tom Arnold made waves by claiming that notorious boxing promoter Bob Arum once called Giants co-owner Steve Tisch on Saban's behalf.

The below tweet gets the exact year wrong, but the sentiment is correct.

Alabama DL coach Karl Dunbar's playbook was stolen from his backpack
Police say an Alabama coach's backpack, which included his playbook, was stolen from his hotel ahead of the National Championship. Right away everyone assumed this man is a Georgia fan, although the alleged theft didn't seem to have an impact on the field.

It isn't a surprise to hear Saban referencing "the next challenge" as he is legendary for simply forging ahead after experiencing unparalleled success.

Although there is always a possibility he takes another position, it doesn't appear likely the 66-year-old will head to NY. Instead, he scribbled ' I resign as HC of the NYJ', and eventually ended up in New England after.

In one of Bruce Arians first moves in retirement, he chimed into the discussion where Nick Saban could go after his latest title at Alabama (though Saban has shown no signs of actually wanting to go anywhere else): The NFL.

Alabama coach Nick Saban is fresh off winning a national championship and there are lucrative NFL jobs available.

He is 132-20 in his 11 years at Alabama and once again has a talented team coming back that should be among the favorites to win the national championship.

If the Giants were completely sold on Wilks, they could have prevented him from getting on the plane to Arizona. But the rumors can't be totally dismissed due to the mutual flirting that has taken place between the Giants and Saban every time the team has an opening.
