Nick Saban got a laugh out of an online sportsbook setting odds on when he'll call it quits.

The 67-year-old Alabama head coach made it clear Thursday that he doesn't plan on retiring any time soon.

"That's the first I've heard of that one. But it's amusing," Saban said when asked about MyBookie setting the over/under for his retirement at 5.5 more seasons, according to Rainer Sabin of

Saban underwent hip surgery in April but was already back to work two days later. He said he can't imagine himself being idle.

"That's not something I enjoy," he said. "That's not something I want to do anytime soon I can tell you that. I just enjoy being back of a team so much, the relationships.

"To have Julio Jones come back the first two days I was doing my rehab on my hip, he was there with me doing it. Tua (Tagovailoa) actually came in yesterday when I was doing rehab and gave me a medical examination. Some of these things are really special. So, no time soon. I don't know what Vegas knows that I don't know."
