Nick Saban joins ESPN as college football analyst

Nick Saban is making a comeback to college football.

ESPN announced Wednesday that Saban is joining its Saturday College GameDay program as an analyst. He’ll also provide NFL draft and SEC Media Days analysis.

“ESPN and College GameDay have played such an important role in the growth of college football, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to join their team,” Saban said in the release. “I’ll do my best to offer additional insights and perspectives to contribute to College GameDay, the ultimate Saturday tradition for college football fans.”

Saban, 72, retired from coaching last month after 17 seasons at Alabama, where he won six of his seven national titles. He finished with a career mark of 297-71-1, 206 of those wins coming at Alabama (with 29 losses). Alabama quickly hired Kalen DeBoer as his replacement.

Saban began his head coaching career at Toledo in 1990. He coached Michigan State from 1995-1999 before accepting the head coaching job at LSU in 2000. He won his first national title in 2003 at LSU.
