Default Alabama reportedly going to offer $40 mil. to Nick Saban

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2715745

Alabama is really desperate it seems. It looks as if they've gone all-in in getting Nick Saban. What are they going to do if he doesn't take their offer?

No he shouldn't. Only a fool would walk into that job thinking that he'd be given any chance to do it right. The University of Alabama is looking hard for the next guy to fire because he isn't Bear Bryant. Saban is smart to not fall for that.

40 Million and college contracts are pretty much garanteed. That's a boatload of cash. That would be hard to turn down.

Default Re: Alabama reportedly going to offer $40 mil. to Nick Saban

Then fine, take their money and wait for the axe to fall. If all he cares about is grabbing these idiots money then it's a good plan. They're desperate and stupid though so he should understand going in that a firing is inbound. I'm just saying that his being a good college coach makes no difference here IMO. The people doing the hiring at Alabama are nuts and they'll send him packing as soon as their (very small) reservoir of patience is spent.

I think the best thing that could have happened to Alabama once Bear Bryant died would have been a 10 or so year long spell of getting stomped into the ground on a regular basis. Then they'd learn to appreciate what they have instead of dwelling on what they don't have anymore. I liked Grant Teaff's comment about their recent coaching problems. He said something along the lines of "Tell those people in Tuscaloosa that he ain't coming back".

Sure it would be a well paying job. It would be a pressure cooker the likes of which he's never experienced before and it would be almost certainly a thankless job that would end in a firing.

I don't know if living with that Alumni is worth $40 million. Just ask a few of the coaches (Curry, Franchione) who left on their own accord for a lesser program....they know where you live and throw bricks with death notices attached through your window if you lose.

With $40 million I could have bulletproof glass installed & hire a small army of bodyguards. If they want to fire me in a couple of years, I'll just move along & take their money with me. I'd do it so I could secure my families financial future for 2-3 generations.

pshh...I'd turn all 40 million into 1 dollar bills and roll around in it.

Coach a game? nah, you'd have to find me in my piles of money.

Leaving Alabama for Texas A&M is not leaving to a lesser program. If anything, it was a step into a job with as tough if not tougher expectations.

And that's why they call them Godfather offers.
Would this mean that 'Phins D coach Dom might get another shot as an NFL HC ?
