    Sayeth Saban

    A chronology of comments about Nick Saban taking the head coaching job at Alabama:

    Nov. 27:
    Saban: "When I was in college it was always about coming to the pros. This is the challenge I wanted. I had a good college job. Why would I have left that if I was going to be interested in other college jobs?

    "I took this as a challenge. We certainly haven't seen this through and gotten where we want to go and finished the job here, so why would I be interested in something else?"

    Dec. 5:
    Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga (after giving Saban a vote of confidence): "I am completely sold on Nick Saban. I would admit we made a mistake if we did make a mistake, but I firmly believe in Nick Saban."

    Dec. 7:
    Saban: "I'm flattered that they may have been interested in me, but it never really progressed, because we just never let it progress."

    Dec. 21:
    Saban: "I guess I have to say it. I'm not going to be the Alabama coach. ... I don't control what people say. I don't control what people put on dot-com or anything else. So I'm just telling you there's no significance, in my opinion, about this, about me, about any interest that I have in anything other than being the coach here.

    Dec. 27:
    Saban: "I'm just making a rule to never comment on something like that again because every time you comment on it, it just makes for another story. So I'm not going to comment on it five years from now, and I'm not going to comment on it next week."

    Looks like Alabama hired a big fat liar !!!

    anif you look at it from the other end, when the owner gets in front of the camera's, and tells the world that Coach Saban's job is safe, and he will not be fired at the end of the season.


    27 hours after the season ends, Coach Saban is looking for a new job.

    We have seen that one too many times also.

    If I was the owner, and I have a head Coach who is out looking for another job while under contract to me. I would fire him and find someone else who wants to be there.

    Agreed. I don't have a lot of respect for the guy.
