There is a good chance the Philadelphia Eagles will fire Andy Reid at the end of the season, and one name that has been mentioned as a possible replacement for him is Alabama coach Nick Saban. Legendary Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski is not willing to give Saban his endorsement. As you know, Saban left LSU for short stint with the Miami Dolphins from 2005-2006. He then left Miami to coach at Alabama, where he has been since 2007 and won two national championships (with a third possibly coming this season). Like many others, Jaws felt the way Saban left the Dolphins was classless. “I’m not a Saban guy, because I don’t like liars, and I think he lied,” Jaworski told 97.5 The Fantatic earlier this week, via The Big Lead. “I think he lied to the Miami Dolphins, and to the fans of Miami, and he left. And it’s pretty simple, I think integrity is very important, if you don’t have integrity, I don’t know how you can be successful. “Yeah, I know he’s great at Alabama, and he’ll probably win another national championship, but I just don’t like people that don’t have integrity, so it’s pretty easy for me to say I don’t want Nick Saban in town.” Depending on who you believe, you could make the argument that Saban technically didn’t lie to the Dolphins. Many feel that Saban was interested in Alabama all along, but there is another line of thinking that Saban turned down Alabama’s initial offer and intended to stay in Miami. Then, Bama came back and offered to make him the highest-paid coach in college football, and Saban accepted the bigger offer. Whatever the case, it’s clear that Jaws has a strong opinion of the Bama coach. Even if Saban wants us to think he never lied, it doesn’t sound like Jaworski has any intention of believing him.
