Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban's agent told Texas officials in January that Texas was the only school that he would consider leaving the Crimson Tide for, and that his success with the Crimson Tide had put him under "special pressure."
Saban's agent Jimmy Sexton, made the comments during a 45-minute call with former Texas Regent Tom Hicks and current Regent Wallace Hall. Hicks detailed the call in a Sept. 24 email that was obtained Tuesday by the AP through an open-records request. The Tide has won the last two national titles and his team is currently ranked No. 1. Pressure can reach even higher levels with continued success, so we understand that somewhat. We still wonder why Saban would even consider wanting to leave such a good thing.
