Suspicions have mounted that Nick Saban might be leaving Alabama for Texas. Rumored reports have heightened speculations that it could be true Saban might replace University of Texas head coach, Mack Brown. AJC.com reports Dec. 6 that University of Texas President Bill Powers squashed all those rumors saying that the school has not contacted Saban about a coaching position with the Longhorns.
“We don’t have an answer” Powers said. “Mack’s our coach. I haven’t talked to him about the future. Nothing has happened. The team and he are concentrating on the Baylor game.”
When Powers was asked if Brown has said anything about staying past his sixteenth season, he didn't have a solid answer.
“That’s for Mack to decide. I think he would (tell me)," Powers replied.
Powers was adamant, however, that he had never even met Saban.
“I’ve never met Nick Saban. I’ve never talked to Nick Saban. We have not hired NickSaban,” Powers asserted.
Powers didn't deny that a current and former Texas regent spoke with the Alabama coach's agent, Jimmy Sexton, back in January. It had to do with Saban possibly replacing Brown, but the Longhorns coach wasn't interested in retiring.
There's a lot of people hoping Nick Saban won't leave Alabama and that Mack Brown won't leave Texas. Are you convinced both will stay where they are after Bill Powers' response to the media?
