Rumors about Saban potentially leaving Alabama to coach Texas have been swirling for months, but the speculation was taken to the next level when a report surfaced earlier this week indicating Mack Brown will be stepping down as Longhorns coach. Alabama is said to have presented Saban with a contract extension proposal last week, and reports claimed school officials were growing uneasy as it sat on his desk.
Shortly after news of Saban’s extension was reported, it was also reported that Mack Brown would not be stepping down at Texas.
