72-YEAR-OLD SABAN IS COACHING AGAIN

Lou Saban's still coaching in the sticks, but the man who led the Buffalo Bills to two AFL championships in the 1960s has lofty goals.

Here's his take on the season's schedule for his latest team, Alfred State, a junior college 75 miles southeast of Buffalo that chose Saban as coach for its new football program on Wednesday:"Well, we open with Notre Dame, then we take on Michigan. We needed a softie there," Saban joked. "Then we take on Tapioca Tech. We'll need a breather."

Taking a breather is one thing Saban, 72, has never quite managed in four decades of coaching, jumping from job to job on every level, from junior high school to the pros. Saban has held dozens of coaching positions, sometimes staying at a job for as little as a few weeks.
