There have long been rumors that link Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban to the Texas Longhorns, but Saban and his camp have denied the rumors in the past. However, new information has been made available that makes it clear Saban’s agent has reached out to the Longhorns and has been shopping Saban to the team.
From the Associated Press:
“Sexton confirmed that UT is the only job Nick would possibly consider leaving Alabama for, and that his success there created special pressure for him,” Hicks wrote in the email to brother and current Regent Steve Hicks.
Of course, just because Saban’s agent is open to the idea, it doesn’t mean that Saban would actually want to leave the Crimson Tide.
Saban isn’t getting any younger and he has a great thing going for him in Alabama, so building another program at this point in his career may not be something that Saban would be interested in doing.
At the same time, returning Texas to glory would be the best way for Saban to finish off his coaching career.
