If you think they are the "best of friends" you don't understand the boss/employee relationship. In all honesty, Nick will probably tell Smart to go. The guy has his own career path to carve.It the only way Smart will grow other than a Head Coach position.
The mental image of Nick Saban being besties with anybody was enough to make me laugh out loud . Dumb gumps.

He'll eventually leave, I'm not saying he won't, but I don't think he will leave for anything other than a head coaching position in college. As I said...they have the same philosophies on football and, as Saban proved at the Dolphins, those philosophies don't work in the NFL.
He makes more money at Alabama as a DC than he would as a DC in the NFL.
