The allegation that Saban was on his way but Mack ruined it by waiting a few extra days to step down is just one final jab being thrown by people that hate Mack Brown.
Saban was never coming.
I can agree with that, but was he ever offered the job? Sure seemed like it to me. You would think a competent AD would quell the rumors like that, especially considering how bad it made the organization look before Mack had officially been forced out. I have a hard time believing that he wasn't a candidate and the first choice of at least a few people in power at Texas. If he was never a candidate, then that was a colossal PR cluster****.
