Day of Reckoning

At 8:37 a.m. we are supposedly within minutes of finding out confirmation whether Nick Saban will be Bama's new coach. Reports from Miami are saying it's a "done deal". While that makes sense, I am still waiting for the official word.

UA still on hold as Saban weighs choices, By Cecil Hurt, Sports Editor, Tuscaloosa News

Going or staying? Nick Saban to announce decision at 10 a.m., South Florida Sun-Sentinel

From Birmingham News:

Source: Saban tells assistant he'll take Alabama job
Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban told a Dolphins assistant coach on Tuesday night that he had decided to accept the University of Alabama head coaching job, a source close to the situation said this morning.

Meanwhile, another source said Saban's wife, Terry, contacted the UA athletics administration this morning regarding housing arrangements.

However, a third source cautioned this morning that the situation was ever-changing, and that Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga was still making efforts to keep Saban in Miami.

Saban and Huizenga were scheduled to meet at approximately 9 o'clock this morning. Saban said Tuesday that he intended to inform Huizenga of a decision then.

The plane that took Alabama Athletics Director Mal Moore to Miami on Monday afternoon was still in Miami at 9:15 a.m. CST today but its engine was running.
