There also exists Saban2014.com, which is exactly what it sounds like.
This is a reaction to an Associated Press report earlier this week that Texas regents and Alabama coach Nick Saban's agent spoke over the winter about what interest Saban may have in the UT job, should coach Mack Brown retire.
Brown has not retired, of course, and Saban, 61, said this week he's too old to start over at a new program.
But with the Longhorns (1-2) struggling, particularly on defense, it appears more likely by the week that Texas will be seeking a new football coach this offseason.
Texas fans are obviously aiming high.
BEST OF MAXIM
Well, Alabama Crimson Tide fans. It’s time for you to get angry and laugh at Texas Longhorn fans. Since Mack Brown is on the hot seat, people actually think Nick Saban will go to Texas. Of course, Saban is infamous in lying to the media and saying that he would not take the coaching job at Alabama but ended up going there. There is no way this happens but the fact that Longhorn...
On the morning drive to work, sport’s talk show host Paul Finebaum was still on the subject. The fact that University of Texas fans continue to think its a possibility that Nick Saban would consider to replace Mack Brown.
The Associated Press reported on Thursday that a current and former Texas regent contacted Nick Saban’s agent, Jimmy Sexton, in January about the concept.
Alabama Coach Nick Saban dropped the name as easily as most would have mentioned his auto mechanic. “I was just talking to Zach Johnson out there...,” Saban said, pointing in the general direction to his office from the media center in the Mal Moore Athletics Building during Saban’s Monday press briefing.
Nick Saban has put together a dynasty at Alabama and seems to be happy there, but if one job could make him leave Tuscaloosa, it might be Texas. According to a report, at least one side has interest in that happening. The Associated Press reported on Thursday that Saban’s agent, Jimmy Sexton, spoke with University […]
I'd hate to insult anybody's intelligence by stating the obvious, but if you're a college football coach (namely Mack Brown), and your regents are talking, on the record , with The Associated Press, about how maybe you should think about retirement and, oh yeah, we've been talking to someone else . . .
Well that's, uh, probably not a good sign for you.
AUSTIN, Texas -- A few days after Alabama won the 2013 national championship, a University of Texas regent and a former regent talked with Nick Saban's agent about the possibility of the Crimson Tide coach replacing Longhorns coach Mack Brown, The Associated Press has learned.
Regent Wallace Hall of Dallas told the AP he spoke by telephone with agent Jimmy Sexton a few days...
Dylan Moses chose the familiarity of Baton Rouge, and a three minute walk to college over the allure of Nick Saban and years of hatred in his home state.
Moses, who drew national praise for being recruited by LSU and Alabama, has chosen to commit to the Tigers at the beginning of his freshman year.
Moses is currently attending University Lab High School this fall, which is about...
Sometime last week the news broke that the good folks at the University of Texas had tried to talk to Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban about coming to Austin. Saban said he wasn't interested stating that he was simply too old to start over again.
Well, Texas fans are not having it. They want Nicky Satan to come to Austin and they have the t-shirt to prove it.
Jim McElwain has labored in college football's ''Mecca'' under Alabama coach Nick Saban and run the offense for two national championship teams.
Now Colorado State's head coach, McElwain returns to Bryant-Denny Stadium Saturday night as a heavy underdog trying to find a way to beat his old boss and stop former quarterback pupil AJ McCarron.
Fans in Austin are going to want a big name coach; someone they can look at and think that he is going to turn things around in a heart beat. It has been no secret that the Longhorns are interested in Nick Saban; also no secret that he has no interest in leaving Alabama. So why not go after LSU Head Coach Les Miles?
The answer to that is easy--because he...
This just confuses things even more. Texas coach Mack Brown thinks he is digging his way out, while Longhorns power brokers are trying to figure out how to gently get rid of him. The story was mysteriously leaked during the week that Texas officials had talked with Nick Saban's agent in January about whether Saban might be interested in taking over the program. Did Brown think...
Nick Saban left Kyle Field on Saturday in a state of relief rather than triumph.Alabama could say it avenged its only loss last season and picked up...
Dylan Moses only recently began his high school career at University Lab High in Baton Rouge, La., yet the ninth-grader has already (for now) decided to play college football down the road at LSU.
"Just committed to LSU #GeaxTigers!!" Moses tweeted Sunday night (He meant to tweet "Geaux Tigers," but there's time to work on that).
