CLEVELAND (AP) - If the Browns were even thinking about contacting Nick Saban about their coaching job, Alabama's coach made it clear the NFL is in his past - not his future.
With their search in its second week and appearing stalled, the Browns may have considered calling Saban, who coached the Miami Dolphins for two years taking over the Crimson Tide's program. Fresh off winning his third national title in four years, the 61-year-old Saban reiterated Monday that he's content at Alabama and outlined several reasons why he prefers to coach in college.
Saban worked as assistant in Cleveland under Bill Belichick, and there has long been speculation he might one day return to the Browns.
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has interviewed several coaching candidates and is expected to meet with more this week.
