Players leaving, coaches leaving and Nick Saban enters 13th year

Matthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports

It is the second year of coaching turnover for Alabama football and seven juniors are heading for the upcoming NFL Draft, but Nick Saban is still in Tuscaloosa. 

The 2018 season did not go according to plan for him, but he is ready to move on and get prepared for spring practice, a productive summer and a chance to return to the College Football Playoff win a seventh national championship.

Regardless of those moving on, there is still experience returning to the roster on top of talented freshmen hungry for a starting spot.
