TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama coach Nick Saban said he received overtures for other jobs after claiming the second national title in three years. Instead of bolting, he has received a raise and contract extension worth $5.62 million a year that he said represents his intention to finish his career in Tuscaloosa.
Rumors were that Dallas tried to get him, and that the Longhorns offered him a substantial amount of money. This is the first time he acknowledged that he was approached. This contract will run through 2020.
