SABAN STILL NOT SIGNED
Here's an interesting tidbit. Nick Saban, SAVIOR OF ALABAMA FOOTBALL, officially hired back in January, has yet to sign a contract.
The final stumbling block in landing Saban's signature was endorsements, which make up much of his total compensation package under a multimillion-dollar "talent fee," the newspaper reported. That appears to have been resolved.
"I'm in 100 percent agreement with Dr. Witt," Saban said in a statement to the paper. "I'm pleased and happy with the way the university has handled the negotiations, and I am hopeful we'll have it completed very soon."
The final contracts for Saban and his assistant coaches will be submitted to the University System Board of Trustees' compensation committee for approval. Athletic director Mal Moore said he is optimistic that Saban will have signed
In response to the story, Saban said: "I will not be the next Montana State coach."
Technically, still not the next Alabama head coach.
