Alabama gives extension to football coach Saban

Sat., Dec. 14, 2013

University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban is staying put, apparently for the duration of his career. The university announced Friday night that Saban has reached “a long-term agreement” to remain with the Crimson Tide. Alabama didn’t release terms of the deal, which must be approved by the board of trustees. Saban received an eight-year deal in March 2012 worth about $5.6 million annually. The agreement quells speculation that Saban would take over at Texas if Mack Brown steps down. Saban, who turned 62 on Oct. 31, has led the Tide to three national championships in the past four years with no signs of fading from annual contention.
