Bama coach Nick Saban and new Gators head coach Will Muschamp had a falling out while Muschamp worked as a defensive assistant for Saban with the Dolphins. The Palm Beach Post
has detailed the relationship and talks about how Saban got all tough with Muschamps mom over the phone once...
While Will Muschamp and his wife were on vacation in the Bahamas, his parents, Larry and Sally Muschamp, were babysitting their children in Coral Springs when an angry Saban called the house. He needed a particular document from Muschamp, and ordered Sally to fax it to him.
Not finding a fax machine in her son's home, Sally drove to an office supply store to send it. Thirty minutes later, Saban had not received it and called again. He had given her the wrong number, Sally said.
"Where's that fax?" Saban barked. "Get it to me now."
How did Muschamp's father respond?
"That son of a bitch," he said. "I'm surprised she didn't say, 'When it gets there, put it where the sun don't shine.' She didn't. But that's Saban. He and Will got crosswise in Miami for whatever reason."
Florida and Bama face off October 1.
