I think he will go, I personally would like to see him stay in Miami, because I for one think he is a very good head coach at the professional level.

I have a feeling Saban will leave to Alabama- but I think it would be interesting to see if he could really succeed as an NFL coach. So in that regard I hope he stays but I bet he will end up with the Crimson Tide.

ESPN radio is reporting (Len PAsquerelli via Colin Cowherd) that Saban has accepted the Bama Job.

He skipped a meeting with the Dolphins brass today, informed his coaches and the owner via telephone/speakerphone that he was leaving.

Don't wait for him to appear at that Miami podium.

Later today I bet he will be at an Alabama podium.

Yep. Typical Saban fashion. At least this time he waited for the season to be over. I guess that's a positive.

After repeated denials, Saban takes Bama job

Nick Saban has accepted an offer from Alabama to coach the Crimson Tide and left the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday, two weeks after declaring "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."

Saban will return to the SEC, where he won a national championship with LSU .Saban told team owner Wayne Huizenga of his intentions via telephone and then informed all of his coaches by speakerphone that he was leaving to accept the Alabama position, a source told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Alabama made its formal offer to Saban on Monday after rumors swirled for weeks that the Crimson Tide were pursuing the former LSU coach. The offer, believed to run from eight to 10 years, is worth $35 million to $40 million, and includes many variables, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Monday.

Saban had issued repeated denials that he was interested in coaching at Alabama, one of the most high-profile and high-pressure college coaching jobs in the country. He leaves the Dolphins with three years left on a deal worth approximately $4.5 million a year.

Alabama began looking for a coach after firing Mike Shula on Nov. 27. The Tide finished the season 6-7, losing to Oklahoma State in the Independence Bowl.

On Tuesday, Saban asked for and recevied more time from Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga to make a decision.

Huizenga remained optimistic Tuesday that Saban would return to Miami, and gave him until 10 a.m. Wednesday to make a decision.

"I'm hoping he's leaning on staying," Huizenga was quoted as saying in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I like Nick a lot and hope he's going to stay. I'm not upset. You just have to play this thing through."

Huizenga has said he received repeated assurances from Saban late in the season that he would return in 2007. And Saban issued frequent public denials of interest in moving to Tuscaloosa, such as on Dec. 21, when he said: "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."

ESPN.com's Mark Schlabach and Len Pasquarelli contributed to this story.
