Nick Saban has agreed to a multi-year contract extension to remain the head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Both Cecil Hurt of TideSports and ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit are reporting that Saban has agreed to the deal with Alabama and more details should be released soon.
The official Alabama athletics twitter also confirmed the deal. Saban signed an extension back in March of 2012 and with this new extension it should keep Saban with Alabama well past 2020.
Speculation ran rampant over the previous week that Saban was flirting with the Texas Longhorns. This site has maintained that Saban was staying put at Alabama.
