Saban isn't leaving for Texas.
Amid rumors of a potential change at Texas, Nick Saban has signed an extension to remain at Alabama. According to various reports, Saban will receive an extension to around $7 million a season.
If Texas made a change from Mack Brown, Saban was expected to be the No. 1 target for new athletic director Steve Patterson. However, if there was any doubt Saban would remain at Alabama, that was removed on Friday night.
Brown’s status with Texas remains unchanged, and this extension should end the speculation that Saban would be a target for the Longhorns.
