Saban is waiting… January 2, 2007

Posted by jaxxduece in Sports.

Looks like Saban will wait til tomorrow morning to make his decision on whether or not to go to Alabama. He was offered a 7 year, $40 million contract from ‘Bama, which is quite a bit more than the $4.5 million a year contract he is getting from Miami. I think he will go, and here is why:

1. If he looks down the road with Miami, he might see a dim future. His defense is getting a bit long in the tooth, and Jason Taylor is talking retirement (granted, I dont think he will, but its always a sign that they are close when they say it).

2. Signed Culpepper to a long contract that might come back to haunt the franchise (see Drew Brees).

3.First losing season for Saban in his 13 years as a head coach. He is very competitive and I doubt it fits him well.

4. He knows how to coach in the college and has the hardware to prove it.

Either way, I still like Saban. I would love to see him coach college ‘ball again. I wish it wasnt in the boonies of ‘Bama, me being a LSU fan and all, but he brought us a championship, so he will always be cool in my book. If he were to stay in Miami, it would be hard not to respect a man who decided to stick with his original goal: win it all at the next level.
