I wonder what it’s like to win three BCS National Championships in four years? Obviously this kind of success is much better than having a losing record, but at what point does winning at such a routine rate become trivial? Apparently Nick Saban is asking himself the same thing, and may already be looking for a way out of his current position as the head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Believe it or not; Saban’s agent Jimmy Sexton met with a Texas Longhorns regent — trustee — in January about the Longhorns signing Saban on to the be the team’s newest head coach. This meeting took place with Texas unsure about whether or not Mack Brown would retire and thus step down as the program’s head coach. Brown has been leading the “burnt orange” since 1998, but he is in the midst of easily the worst season of his career as Texas is currently a national punchline at 1-2.
Naturally, the slick Saban has denied the recent rumors. A closer look at Saban’s track record tells you that this guy doesn’t like to stay with one program for very long. The 61-year old head coach held six different job titles from 1990-2006, where he most notably spent time with the Miami Dolphins and the LSU Tigers.
Keep an eye on Saban and the Longhorns because Texas is desperate and the wily Saban could be tired of the Tide’s winning ways.
