Alabama head coach Nick Saban had a big smile on his face during today’s post-practice press conference after being asked about what grandparenthood was like. That ended quickly when the next reporter asked him about the rumors regarding his candidacy at Texas. Saban, whose tone immediately changed, completely denied having any “talks” with UT.
When asked how far talks between his representatives and Texas went, Saban said “there were no talks.”

His stance is interesting, given that numerous sources last week claimed Saban would be leaving for Texas. If we’re to believe that there was zero truth to anything being reported, Saban did an amazing job of using the leverage to get himself a new contract at Alabama.
