Bruce Arians 'just messing' around with talk of Nick Saban to Giants

The architect of Alabama's current dynasty coached the Miami Dolphins to two unremarkable seasons before returning to college.

Would a sixth National Title with the Tide, a seventh for Saban, an 18th in all for Alabama, make Saban even happier? He's already one of the most successful coaches in the history of amateur athletics.

Attention: Bruce Arians. Stop "messin' with the world".

"It would not surprise me", Arians said. "There's a job he covets and it just happens to be open". Why he would do it, I don't know, but it wouldn't shock me if he did'.

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

Former Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians opened the door to speculation that Saban might have interest in a return to the National Football League, even though Saban has not indicated he would leave Alabama.

Customers who have purchased the products should discard them and bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund. Fieldbrook Foods is working with each of these retailers to recall the affected products, the FDA said.

However, a source told the New York Post's Paul Schwartz that Saban is not interested in leaving Alabama for the Giants.

Why does Arians think the 66-year-old Saban wants to coach the Giants? Also, dual-threat quarterback Justin Fields, the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2018 according to ESPN, announced his intentions to enroll at Georgia this winter....

Saban left the Dolphins after two seasons, during which he went 15-17, and spent four seasons as Bill Belichick's defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns from 1991-94.

And just to clarify, that open job belongs to the Giants, who are already interviewing candidates to replace second-year coach Ben McAdoo who was sacked during the team's miserable 3-13 campaign.

Then again, here's a dude that's earning north of $11 million annually and continues to remain the toast of Alabama.
