On Thursday news broke that a former University of Texas regent had talked with Nick Saban’s agent, Jimmy Sexton, about possibly replacing Mac Brown. During his weekly radio show on Thursday, Saban was asked about the report
by Cecil Hurt of the Tuscaloosa News.
“Nothing went on that I know of. I don’t know about any of this stuff,” Saban said. “I haven’t talked to anybody about that particular situation. They have a coach there.”
“Every year it’s something. Last year it was the Cleveland Browns,” Saban said. “The year before that it was somebody else, the NFL. Terry and I are very happy here in Tuscaloosa. We’re really love the University of Alabama. We really feel like a part of the community here and we have a lot of good friends here.”
“And, quite frankly,” Saban said, “I’m just too damn old to start over somewhere else.”
