I just read this and although it's believable because Saban has exhibited Petrino-esque traits, I can't believe he'd jump ship already...Can I? The really cool thing about this rumor is that there's no buy-out, so he's a much easier "get". But, he's an expensive "get" even sans a buyout. I believe he's still the highest-paid college coach at nearly $5 mil/yr.
Regardless, he's Joe Tiller's bitch (Tiller is undefeated v. Saban, 1997 was my favorite Saban loss to Joe).
