And so it continues. It wasn’t long ago that we heard Nick Saban was discussing a contract extension with the Alabama Crimson Tide that would pay him $7 million per year, but the rumors linking Saban to Texas just won’t die.
A new report has surfaced saying that a source close to the Texas executive council of regents expects Saban to become the next head coach of the Texas Longhorns.
From Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

It is hard to keep up with all of the rumors that are circulating, but it is hard to ignore the growing reports of Saban to Texas. The rumors are gaining steam and with more reports the story has more validity.
It once seemed highly unlikely that Saban would leave Alabama, but now you have to begin to wonder.
Mack Brown is expected to step down at the end of this week which would open to door for Saban to join the Longhorns, so stay tuned to the story that will likely include many twists and turns over the days and weeks and weeks ahead.
