Alabama case spotlights Emmert, Saban friendship


NCAA President Mark Emmert has a special relationship with Alabama head football coach Nick Saban. As chancellor at LSU from 1999 to 2004, Emmert hired Saban as his football coach and eventually helped make him the highest-paid coach in the nation at $2.3 million. "Chancellor Emmert is absolutely the best boss I've ever had," Saban said at LSU in 2004. (USA Today)
