ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum appeared on Mike Greenberg's new podcast, I'm Interested, and discussed something he almost never talks about - Nick Saban.

Kidding, of course.

The ESPN analyst did have some pretty interesting things to say about Alabama's head coach and his future, though.

Greenberg asked Finebaum when he believes Saban will walk away from the Alabama football program and what he believes he'll do next.

Finebaum said that while ESPN has tried on multiple occasions to hire Saban for College GameDay, he just can't see Saban going into TV in a full-time capacity. The ESPN analyst also said that while some NFL rumors have surfaced, he thinks that is off the table, too.

Basically, Finebaum thinks Saban will eventually just walk away from the Crimson Tide, and it'll probably happen sooner rather than later.
