    Name One Coach

    Name me one Coach that has left a team in the third year of a five year contract. Do these people know the meaning of contract?

    Do you think Wayne Huyzienga will not take the Alabama money that Nick Saban will possibly earn?

    He ain't going nowhere. He has a

    CONTRACT

    LOL, and if you believe that any contract is really iron clad, you are being foolish.

    Chicago Sun Times - December 22, 2006:

    Nick Saban says he doesn't browse the Internet.

    He may have to start soon, if only to follow the persistent rumors about him and his future.

    A story posted on NFL.com this week said Alabama "keeps on making runs at Saban" in an effort to convince the Miami Dolphins coach to return to college and take over in Tuscaloosa for the fired Mike Shula. The same story even said an unnamed NFL head coach said Saban is getting closer to joining the Crimson Tide.

    So on Thursday, Saban -- who has tried to denounce the story about him potentially going to Alabama numerous times in recent weeks -- again, and adamantly, denied that he's headed back to the college ranks.

    "I guess I have to say it," Saban said. "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."

    When the stories linking Alabama and Saban began circulating last month, almost immediately after Shula got fired following a 6-6 season, the former LSU coach said he was flattered but not interested.

    He's bristled at nearly every suggestion about him leaving the Dolphins since.

    "I don't know how many times I've got to respond to rumor and innuendo," Saban said. "I have no control over that. I've stated what my intentions are and they really haven't changed, so I don't know what the issue is. And I don't know why people keep asking about it."

    Saban acknowledged earlier this month that Alabama approached his agent about its coaching job, but he declined an invitation to talk to the Crimson Tide.

    Saban agreed to a five-year contract worth at least $22.5 million with Miami on Christmas Day 2004.

    saban has to at least buy out the rest of his contract right? man i sort of feel for wayne now...he wants to win bad and he just got sideswiped by saban...he did what any good owner should do...find the coach u think is right for the job, give him control, and stay out of the way..and after only two years saban might bounce?

    Stupidity such as your statement permeated this site a while back. You should have been here. It made for great fodder.

    October 6, 2004:

    "Steinberg declined to discuss his client's change of heart, but on Sept. 24, Williams was ordered by an arbitrator to repay more than $8.6 million to the team for breaching his contract."

    :dunce: again

    Mike Mularkey submitted his resignation to the Buffalo Bills yesterday, a person familiar with discussions between the coach and the team told the Associated Press.

    http://www.boston.com/sports/football/articles/2006/01/13/mularkey_to_resign_as_bills_coach/

    Not that i'm sad he's gone or anything.... Point is, Saban can resign anytime he feels. Just like Wannstache.

    If he doesn't want to be here, I don't want him here.

    Whether Wayne goes after Saban's money is irrelevant to me.

    Since we are in love with this figure :dunce:

    I will tell you why it is applicable to you. A resignation must be accepted by the other party in the contract. Your :dunce: Marv Levy accepted the resignation of Mike Mularkey.

    My point is/was/will be that Wayne Huyzienga will not accept a resignation. Nick Saban has a contract. He can fulfill it or he will pay the piper.......

    From the miami herald

    "Saban's contract with the Dolphins has no buyout or penalty clause to prevent him from leaving before it expires.
    Although such clauses are common in contracts for college coaches, a lack of such a clause is not atypical on the NFL level because most NFL coaches don't willingly step backward to the college ranks."


    Saban can leave and not owe the dolphins a penny

    Saban can leave with no penalty whenever he wants. Hate to burst you're bubble. Thats what the great Wayne o agreed to. Blame him. I have heard rumors of Wayne will give a new contract to Saban in the morning. I hope not I want his *** out of here. How foolish will Wayne look to his NFL buddies when he has to give a 16-18 coach a contract raise/extension to keep him from going to a college team. Come on Wayne, let him go and lets hire a real coach!

    Armando......

    "Saban's contract with the Dolphins has no buyout or penalty clause to prevent him from leaving before it expires.

    Although such clauses are common in contracts for college coaches, a lack of such a clause is not atypical on the NFL level because most NFL coaches don't willingly step backward to the college ranks.

    The Dolphins late Monday were working on a revised contract for Saban to convince him to remain with the team, but had not yet presented him with that deal. Dolphins President Bryan Wiedmeier was at the team's practice facility well into the evening.

    Part of that reworked contract might seek to better protect Miami's interests should another university approach Saban in the future."

    I cannot believe that this is not editorialized as fact. Who would give him this information? Jimmy Sexton? I know the Dolphins wouldn't give him anything.....

    Why on earth is anyone for giving saban a raise/extension? This is crazy, he is meeting with Bama officials, stabbing our team in the back and you want him to get more money????? I'm trying to understand you're reasoning?

    Contracts are broken all of the time. Someone always has to pay for it though. I believe I made that abundantly clear in MY FIRST POST. :rolleyes2

    As Armando has told you several times, NO ONE IS GOING TO HAVE TO PAY. NO ONE, its not that difficult, if you agree to a contract that has a clause that at any time the contract can be broken, there is no buyout. You don't have to be a lawyer to understand this.

    that's the bottom line...MUCK you are absolutely right. i don't think he really wants to be here. he does not like living in Miami...he prefers a smaller town...and IMO i think he rather coach in college...i don't think he wants to be here for all those reasons i stated and there are probably more.

    Now...who do we go after?


    I also wanted to wish Finheaven and all the members a Happy New Year...I've been busy this past weekend and didn't post a message but I did check this site out often.

    Go Fins!!!

    I don't want Saban to leave and I don;t thibnk he is going but you asked whether a coach has left during a contract in his third year. Didn't Spuriier leave during a contract with the Skins?
