Nick Saban is not giving any hints on his coaching future.

Alabama's coach said he will not put a timetable on how much longer he will coach.

"I'm happy with what I'm doing," Saban said on his radio show Wednesday night. "I feel like I can make a contribution to the young people, and they respond to do things the right way and is actually benefiting them to help them be more successful in their life.

"As long as I'm healthy and can do that and I'm happy doing it, then I'm going to do it."

Saban, 62, has been the coach of four title teams in the BCS era. He's helped Alabama win three of the last four championships.

The Tide is 11-0 this season and No. 1 in the BCS standings going into the final week of the regular season.

Saban's contract at Alabama runs through 2019.

"I know that whenever I don't do it," he said on his radio show, "because I've been a part of a team since I was 10 years old, whether it was Little League or Pop Warner football, playing something all the time and I've been involved in coaching for almost 40 years.

"So I know it's going to be difficult not to do it. But as long as I feel good about it and enjoy doing it and the players respond the way they should...then there's a lot of positive self-gratification in it. And we're going to continue to do it."
