Texas regent talked to Nick Saban's agent

A few days after Alabama won the 2013 national championship, a University of Texas regent and a former regent talked with Nick Saban's agent about the possibility of the Crimson Tide coach replacing Longhorns coach Mack Brown. Regent Wallace Hall of Dallas told the AP he spoke by telephone with agent Jimmy Sexton a few days after the Jan. 7 game. Two days after the call with Sexton, Tom Hicks met with Brown over lunch and told him about the call. He asked Brown if he was ready to retire. (Charlotte Observer)
