From the article that appeared in the Miami Herald this morning:
Huizenga boarded his plane Christmas morning 2004 to fly to Baton Rouge, La., to get Nick Saban signed as Miami's new coach.
''He told me he wasn't ready to give me a decision because he had given his players his word that they would be the first to know if he was leaving or not,'' Huizenga says. 'He said, `I gave them my word,' and I said, 'That's cool. I understand.' I respected the fact he was sticking to his word.''
That is exactly the MO used in Miami after that. And at Michigan State before that.
But, I wonder if he text messaged his players in Baton Rouge saying "so long, suckers!"
