Texas Regent Talked To Saban's Agent

AUSTIN (September 19, 2013) -- The Associated Press has learned that a University of Texas regent and a former regent spoke with Alabama coach Nick Saban's agent about Saban coaching the Longhorns if Mack Brown retired.

Alabama coach Nick Saban insists he's not going anywhere.

Saban responded on his weekly radio show Thursday night to an Associated Press report that his agent talked to a University of Texas regent and a former regent a few days after the Jan. 7 national championship game. The conversation regarded the possibility of the Crimson Tide coach replacing Longhorns coach Mack Brown.

Regent Wallace Hall says he spoke by telephone with Saban's agent, Jimmy Sexton, a few days after the Jan. 7 BCS championship game. Tom Hicks, a former regent, also was on the call with Sexton.

It was not clear who initiated the meeting. Sexton did not return a call seeking comment.

Saban responded that "I don't know about any of this stuff." He says he hasn't spoken to anybody about "that particular situation."

Saban says he and his wife Terry are happy at Alabama "and quite frankly, I'm just too damn old to start all over someplace else, to be honest with you."
