After winning a share of the national title earlier this week when his LSU Tigers defeated the Oklahoma Sooners, Nick Saban became the hottest coaching prospect for NFL teams that needed a leader. Several franchises approached him and it seems Saban is close to a decision on his future.
The LSU coach said he would consider two offers for the next level; to either
become the head man for the Giants or Chicago Bears
. The Giants job was
filled earlier this week by Tom Coughlin and speculation has been running
rampant as to a Saban-Bears union.
This we can confirm; the TFY Draft Preview just learned that Saban's agent,
Jimmy Sexton, is in final contract negotiations with the Bears and a deal is
close to being completed. Ironing out the finer details is all that
The source we spoke with feels it will announced that Saban is the new head
coach in Chicago during one of the playoff games this weekend.
