See? I told you it was a lot over nothing. Alabama never actually interviewed Nick, but they talked with his agent a few times. And ultimately, they offered him a $5 mil a year job, plus $7 mil up front. I guess they were hoping the cash would be enough to sway him.
But its a shame that this is what has happened in sport. Now, teams with a little money just pick a coach and flash some cash and ask them to work for them. Why even interview them at all?
