Miami to Alabama, Greedily

I don't usually follow these things, but I heard and saw Nick Saban say over the weekend that he would not be the Alabama coach... I guess it is just too sweet a deal financially. It was pretty clear that it wasn't his current life's ambition; with that in mind I'm not sure it is a good result for the Crimson Tide if he has relented and taken the job -- basically they bribed him into it and heart is a much better motivator than money; money is a great facilitator, but better to have someone who would love to excel at the job than someone who would love to get rich at the job.

Update: Saban has indeed resigned from the Dolphins. I hear that fear of crime in the Miami Metro area was also a motivating factor. Ouch.
