I will qualify my post by stating this: I personally feel that Saban will remain at Bama and retire as one of the greatest college football coaches of all time.
That being said, I had an interesting conversation with a former strength and conditioning staff member who served under Moffett/Saban at the conclusion of Saban's time at LSU. He presented an interesting perspective that I had not considered.
He described how difficult it is for staff to work under Saban. His "process" puts controlling pressure on staff that he claimed was very apparent to all. He described staff being disgruntled and unhappy. FWIW my friend redirected his goal of being a strength and conditioning coach in college/NFL due in part to witnessing this "process" (opting for running his own very successful business training strength and endurance athletes that HE controls). The current Florida S&C coach (Dillman) and Bama's ginger S&C coach were both his underlings.
In his opinion, Saban's window of his success may decline due to people "getting tired of his shit"
