ANN ARBOR, MICH. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban has won two national titles since 2009 and three in less than a decade.

Saban says he should quit if he starts focusing on what he’s done. He has been locked in this week preparing the defending champion and second-ranked Crimson Tide for their game against No. 8 Michigan on Saturday night in Cowboys Stadium.

Saban says he plans coach “forever” and has turned down chances to return to the NFL since leaving Miami Dolphins because he knows coaching at Alabama is where he belongs.

Any team, pro or college, would have a hard time pulling Wolverines coach Brady Hoke away from his dream job of leading college football’s winningest program.
