In the past three years, Nick Saban has lifted two BCS Championship trophies.
His players out of the University of Alabama are some of the best coached, and it shows on draft day. In the 2012 NFL draft, the Alabama Crimson Tide had five players go in the top 35 selections, more than any other college football program.
This year, Saban and his Crimson Tide are currently ranked No. 1 in the BCS standings.
Several former college coaches have recently had runs with success moving from NCAA coaching to the NFL.
Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll are two coaches that come to mind who have made successful transitions. Harbaugh had an almost fairytale season last year and would have gone to the Super Bowl if it wasn't for punt returner Kyle Williams.
Saban has an excellent chance to take his team to at least a BCS bowl, if not the BCS Championship, and would be an excellent head coach in the NFL.
