Nick Saban, Texas regents speak about possibility of replacing Mack Brown

Chalk this up as a rumor that we had all seen coming. With turmoil in the Texas Longhorns program, there has been plenty of speculation about who could be replacing Mack Brown if he is fired at the end of the season.

Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban has often been linked to the opening, but now it looks like this could be more than just a little rumor.

According to reports, Saban’s agent spoke with Texas regents earlier this year to discuss the possibility.

ESPN passed along the news on Twitter:

It would certainly be shocking to see someone give up such a cozy job where he is king, but restoring the Texas Longhorns program to glory could be a challenge that Saban is intrigued by. After all, he has already accomplished everything he can in Alabama and capping it off with a three-peat before taking over another job may be the challenge he is looking for at this stage in his career.

Expect the Saban to Texas rumors to continue circling for the next few months.
