Shortly after news leaked that Mack Brown was potentially resigning as the Texas Longhorns’ head coach, NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt reported that Nick Saban and Alabama were in contract negotiations.
According to Brandt’s source, the two parties are working on a new deal in the $7 million range.

Rumors have circulated throughout the season with regards to Saban and him possibly jumping to Texas, should Brown either be fired or resign.
Saban has won three national championships with Alabama, as well as one with LSU. He is the best coach in the game today, and one of the greatest of all time. Alabama will undoubtedly do everything in their power to keep him from leaving town.
