It sounds like Saban doesn't even like Lombardi.
I have now have had three credible sources – two in the NFL and one in the college ranks – swear to me that Saban has no attraction whatsoever to Lombardi. One insisted Saban wouldn’t work with Lombardi “in a thousand years.” Another on Monday said there is “zero chance” Saban would leave Alabama to work alongside Lombardi in Cleveland.
That article makes it sound like Saban will not leave for the NFL, and especially not for Cleveland.

Browns hired Cowboys senior VP and general counsel Alec Scheiner as team president, working under CEO Joe Banner.Formerly Jerry Jones' right hand man, Scheiner will likely handle contracts and salary cap management while the Browns hire a personnel executive to oversee football operations. According to ESPN Cleveland, the two names most connected to that position are NFL Network's Michael Lombardi and 49ers director of player personnel Tom Gamble. Because the move wouldn't be a promotion, Gamble is expected to show little interest in joining the Browns. Three credible sources tell ESPN Cleveland that Alabama coach Nick Saban -- believed to be owner Jimmy Haslem's first choice to coach the Browns -- has no interest in joining forces with Lombardi. One source went as far as saying Saban wouldn't work with Lombardi "in a thousand years." Saban is reportedly leaning toward staying at Alabama, as the Browns are not his ideal choice for an NFL team.
