Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban could be the recipient of a $40 million offer, including $7 million in a signing bonus, from Alabama. That's what the Miami Herald was reporting last night on their website. The offer would make him the highest-paid college coach in the history of the world, and not more than a handful of NFL coaches would be making more.

The offer from Alabama is either a last-ditch attempt to save themselves from the embarrassment of being spurned by their top 19 choices for head coaching position, or Saban is telling Alabama something different than he's telling the media. I don't have any particular interest in Saban or Alabama, but it would amuse me if they got to the point where they said to themselves, "Christ, what's left? Is Kotite available?"
