Nick Saban getting hip evaluation in order to coach long-term
Nick Saban offered another hint on Saturday that he is nowhere close to slowing down.
After Alabama’s A-Day spring game, the coach noted that he was going to get his sore hip evaluated at the end of spring ahead of the new season. Why? Because in Saban’s words, he wants to coach “for a lot of more years,” and he wants to be in good shape to make it happen.
Saban: "I've been struggling a little bit with one of my hips. … We're going to do an evaluation at the end of the spring. They say even if it's worst case scenario, it may be 6-8 weeks.
"… I don't want to coach for one more year. I want to coach for a lot of more years."

Saban turns 68 in October, but there is no sign that he intends to slow down anytime soon. In fact, a former assistant thinks he may have another decade in him, and Saban certainly isn’t doing anything to diminish the possibility.
