Report Bruce Arians'just messing around with talk of Nick Saban to Giants

In two seasons as head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Saban went 9-7 and 6-10 before ditching the franchise for Alabama after insisting he would not do that.

What's more, former Alabama safety Landon Collins is now a star on the Giants, but he wasn't necessarily thrilled with Saban's coaching style with the Crimson Tide. There has been speculation that Saban is interested in becoming the new coach of the New York Giants.

Ex-Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was quick to jumpstart rumors about Saban coaching the Giants Tuesday on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd".

"It would not surprise me", Arians said. But he's got a dynasty right now, another dynamite recruiting class. There's a job he covets and it just happens to be open... I don't know what his mindset is right now. "When we grew up, they were the thing", Arians added.

"Because they're the New York Giants", Arians said.

It is not the wildest idea and Saban has expressed interest in the Giants job in the past.

Saban replaced quarterback Jalen Hurts - a sophomore who has two losses in two years - with true freshman Tua Tagovailoa in the second half, which provided a spark for a Crimson Tide offense that seemed lifeless in the first half of the College Football Playoff National Championship. "And there's a job he covets". "Why he would do it, I don't know, but it would not shock me if he did".

And just to clarify, that open job belongs to the Giants, who are already interviewing candidates to replace second-year coach Ben McAdoo who was sacked during the team's miserable 3-13 campaign. However, he's already making more than $11 million per season. Having proven everything he could conceivably prove at the college level, giving the pros one more shot would make sense.

The Giants have interviewed five candidates for their vacancy and will meet with a sixth Wednesday.

The New York Giants standout was part of the "Homers" telecast airing on ESPN2, which featured Collins on the Tide's sideline accompanied by Joe Tessitore and former Georgia QB Aaron Murray on the Bulldogs' sideline with Adam Amin.
