Nick Saban has been rumored to be leaving Alabama before.

His name was linked to the Texas job, as well as the New York Giants opening. Nothing came to fruition in either case.

Saban is 66 years old and very well-compensated. The odds of him leaving Tuscaloosa to coach elsewhere are slim to none, which is good news for Alabama fans but bad news for the rest of the SEC.

That doesn't stop fans from dreaming. Take "Jayhawk Jack," a Kansas fan who called into the Paul Finebaum Show today.

According to Finebaum's Twitter account, Jayhawk Jack asked if Saban would consider taking the KU job so he could accept the challenge of turning around the worst Power 5 program.

The answer, of course, is no.

If Jayhawk Jack was being totally serious, he should probably talk to someone about experiencing delusions. If he called in humorously, that is a hell of a troll.

It is hard to believe that in 2007, Saban's first year at Alabama, he went just 7-6 while Kansas went 12-1 and won the Orange Bowl. God bless Mark Mangino.

Since 2011, Saban has led the Crimson Tide to five national title games and four national championships. They have lost only nine games during that seven-year span.

Contrast that with KU, which has only won 12 games in that time span. Thank God for basketball, right Jayhawk fans?
