More wild HC Rumors- Nick Saban

Recommended Posts

A "source" for these Nick-Saban-To-Giants rumors was, of all people, Tom Arnold...... I was going to describe him as the actor and comedian Tom Arnold, but, as he is neither, it would be inaccurate. Truly, that's as dubious a source as I've ever heard. One might as well cite Roseanne Barr, or maybe Yoko Ono (for the married-into-it thing).

Famed Football pundit:

The 66-year-old Saban has been at Alabama since 2007. There were reports in 2016 that Saban floated the idea of joining the Giants as the replacement for Tom Coughlin. This from actor Tom Arnold:

“They got his deal done with [Ben McAdoo] and they are ready to sign him, and they get a call from Bob Ehrman [an intermediary] who says Nick Saban wants the job,” Arnold told ESPN’s Paul Finebaum. “So they had to stop. This is a Saturday night. They said, ‘You have until Sunday morning at 8 a.m. to say a definite yes. Tell us what he needs for money.’ ‘Well, he needs $10 million to start with and this is the deal. He has to get it approved by his wife right.’ Well, he has to get it approved by his wife right this second because we have a coach on the string here. But if he wants to do it, it has to be right this second. So he had until Sunday morning at 8 a.m. and it didn’t work out. But it was close.”
