MIAMI (AP) - For the first time since Christmas 2006, Nick Saban is back working on the field at Sun Life Stadium.
Saban spent two years coaching in that stadium, the home of the NFL's Miami Dolphins. He went 9-7 in his home games there with the Dolphins and will lead second-ranked Alabama onto that field Monday night against No. 1 Notre Dame in this season's BCS national title game.
On Saturday, he was on the field for Alabama's media day.
Saban insisted for several weeks late in 2006 that he would not leave the Dolphins for the Crimson Tide, famously saying at one point: ``I guess I have to say it. I'm not going to be the Alabama coach.''
Less than two weeks after uttering that phrase, he was the Alabama coach.
And now he's trying for his third national title in four seasons.
