Nick Saban: ‘I’m just too damn old to start over somewhere else’
Nick Saban has heard the rumors swirling about his agent being contacted by board members from Texas. He decided to respond on his radio show tonight according to AL.com:
“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.”
A couple things of note here. Saban again mentions his wife being happy in Tuscaloosa. Second, Saban is 61 and maybe he doesn’t want to do the rebuilding job at Texas. I don’t think this speculation will end until Texas has another coach though given Saban’s history of leaving jobs.
