In a way, Trent Richardson is a focal point in the debate surrounding Nick Saban's future.

He was part of Saban's past as Alabama's running back and if you believe some reports, he might be part of his future.  Richardson is at Cleveland and if the team hires Michael Lombardi as its General Manager, they may then target Saban to be its next head coach.

Richardson told reporters he would be "very shocked" if Saban returns to the NFL.
