A tale of two contracts

Nick Saban’s new deal:  eight years, $6.5 million per year with a $400,000 completion bonus.

Junior’s new deal:  three years, $680,000 for the first two years and $714,000 for the third year.

Hard to question Saban’s numbers, other than why it took seven months to hash out the contract extension.   But I continue to be amazed at every new SEC offensive coordinator who does better, financially speaking, than Mike Bobo.

How you know it’s a slow news day, example number two.

Nick Saban tells assembled media to kiss his ass for asking a stupid question.

Gee, that’s unusual.

The further adventures of Tosh, the intern

Or, an analyst is whatever Nick Saban says an analyst is.  Duh.

You’ll have to forgive Saban for his mistake in language. On March 31 he described his role working with cornerbacks in individual drills as that of a “G.A.” under defensive coordinator Kirby Smart. It was a laughable moment, painting the 62-year-old head coach as the highest paid graduate assistant in the world, not to mention the fact he’s likely not pursuing a post-graduate degree on the side.

Hey, he was serious about that.

Tosh the Intern

Leave it to Nick Saban to describe the job of the guy who was named the 2010 Rivals.com Recruiter of the Year, made $350,000 a year as an assistant coach at Washington and is the latest addition to the multitude in Tuscaloosa as “… an intern that helps us some in recruiting”.
