The interesting thing is that the coaching vacancy at the University of Alabama happened when Mike Shula lost his job for failing to defeat Auburn University as a head coach. Former Miami Dolphin Head Coach (and Mike's father) Don Shula expressed his disappointment with Nick Sabin on a local talk ready station, AM 790.
Sabin will be vilified in South Florida forever because he vehemently denied taking the job with the Alabama Crimson Tide. In fact, all the talk radio sports show keep playing the loop of Sabin's voice stating, "I AM NOT GOING TO BE THE COACH OF ALABAMA!"
Don Shula resigned as Head Coach 10 years ago and the Miami Dolphins football team has never been the same.
