Pete Prisco says...
Pete Prisco's Points at from this morning...

"Deny, deny, deny.

That's what Nick Saban has done constantly when talking about leaving the Dolphins for the Alabama job.

I don't buy it.

I think he's on his way to Tuscaloosa. I really do. Several sources who know Saban think so, too.

The money the Tide is said to be offering -- one source said it was a 10-year deal worth between $35-38 million -- is too good to pass up for Saban. Plus, his two years in the NFL have taught him that he likes the college game better.
With the chance that Wayne Huizenga might be selling the Dolphins, there is no loyalty to the team.

I will be shocked if Saban is coaching the Dolphins in 2007."

I guess a 10 year contract could be possible. I was led to believe that 10 year contracts are not legal in NCAA sports, but Petrino just signed one at Louisville last year for 10 years / $25 million. Maybe it's the State of Alabama that will not allow 10 year contracts. Fran's extension was supposed to be for 7 years, and everything I've heard about this contract would be 7 years.

Comments: would it be possible for the contract to be just say a 7 year contract with an extension of 3 years that alabama could pick up? to me this could be what gets around this law and why it is being reported to be a 10 year contract. I still am not convinced 100% that saban is coming to bama but I am 50/50 on it now
