Alabama's Nick Saban Shoots Down Retirement Talk, Says It's 'Kind of Laughable'

Alabama missed the College Football Playoff last season and is off to a slow start this year after losing to Texas on Saturday, but head coach Nick Saban isn't going anywhere.

During an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show (h/t Mike Rodak of 247Sports), Saban said "it's kind of laughable" that people believe he is close to retiring.

"I feel great right now," he said. "I love it. We've got lots of challenges right now. I'm looking forward to it. We're all in."
