Alabama's Saban responds to report on Texas job

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - 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.

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."

The conversation took place a few days after Alabama won the national championship in January. Two days later, Brown was approached by the former regent to consider retiring. Brown, who had just finished his 15th season, said he did not want to quit and the matter was dropped.

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 conversation. Sexton did not return a call seeking comment.
