"Is there ever a point where you just allow yourself just to say, just to you, 'Not bad for a kid from Monongah, West Virginia?,'" Wojciechowski asked.

"Not really," Saban replied with a chuckle, "because you're always looking for your next challenge."

Prior to his time with the Crimson Tide, Nick Saban had already collected over 30 years of coaching experience between college and NFL teams.

When discussing the preparation and mindset he takes for each season, the seven-time national champion head coach said, "I just look at every year like a new season, like I took a new job and this is a new team."

As a college head coach, the West Virginia native sports a 256-65-1 overall record while he also continues to add to an 8-3 record in the College Football Playoff.

Wojciechowski concluded the interview by asking Saban about his longevity at the head coach position in Tuscaloosa. In classic Saban fashion, the veteran HC said, "I haven't really thought about it."

"So I'll ask you to fill in the blank," Wojciechowski continued, "I'll keep coaching until?"

"[Until] I can't contribute to the organization in a positive way," Saban quickly responded.
