Alabama head coach Nick Saban may never truly get away form any rumors tied to the University of Texas. Fortunately he has had practice in rejecting anything related to the Longhorns, and he was back at it on Thursday at SEC Media Days.
A day after details from an upcoming book suggested Texas was preparing to offer Saban a total package valued over $100 million to replace Mack Brown and leave Alabama, Saban said he had no communications withe Texas.
“I had no conversations with [Texas] and wasn’t offered anything,” Saban said, according to FOXSports.com. “And if I had no conversations with [Texas] than I didn’t have any interest … [We're] happy at Alabama.”
These latest statements seem to echo the comments made by Saban back in December, so his story has not changed. The latest information related to Texas planning to make a push for Saban comes from an upcoming book co-authored by Paul Finebaum and Gene Wojchiechowski. The book, titled “My Conference Can Beat Your Conference: Why the SEC Still Rules College Football,” is scheduled for release on August 5.
