Steve Spurrier Says An NFL Team Could Make Nick Saban's Alabama Salary "Look Paltry"

Nick Saban is college football's highest-paid head coach. The 63-year-old leader of the Crimson Tide program makes roughly $7.1 million per season. 

Steve Spurrier pointed out this morning that Alabama wouldn't be able to stop Saban from going to the NFL if he wanted to. 

An NFL team could make Saban's Alabama salary "look paltry" if it wanted to, he says.

Spurrier probably isn't wrong.

Discussing Saban and the NFL in the same sentence is kind of a Cardinal Sin in the state of Alabama, though.
