CBS Sports reported that Alabama recently approached Nick Saban before the Iron Bowl about reworking his contract and keeping Saban the highest paid coach in college football.
Saban is reportedly making a $5.62 million salary, and NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt was recently told via a source that Saban is in negotiations with Alabama to raise his salary to around the $7 million per year range.
A report from OrangeBloods.com says that Mack Brown will step down soon, although Brown and the school deny the report. Saban’s name has been linked to Texas for much of the season.
