Everyone knows Nick Saban is a great football coach.
According to Paul Finebaum, Texas believes Saban is really, really, really great.
The Longhorns offered Saban a signing bonus up to $15 million and a salary package worth more than $100 million to leave Alabama to become head coach at Texas.
The information was pulled by AL.com from Finebaum’s upcoming book “My Conference Can Beat Your Conference: Why the SEC Still Rules College Football,” that he co-wrote with ESPN.com’s Gene Wojchiechowski.
