During the conversation, he spoke on the retirement rumors and speculation circulating social media.

"It's kinda laughable," said Saban. "I guess I would ask you, 'When's the first time you heard that I was gonna retire?' It started about five years ago and I think it creates some advantages for people, whether it's in recruiting, or whatever it might be, but I love what I'm doing, I'm focused on a challenge- I've always said I don't to ride the program down, I don't want to do this if I can't do it anymore but I feel great right now, I love it, we got lots of challenges this season, I'm looking forward to it and we're all in."
