Muschamp/Saban Split Not As Amicable As They Say

At SEC Media Days, Will Muschamp and Nick Saban were asked about one another and asked about their relationship.  Rumor had it that their mentor-pupil bond had turned frosty.  But both Florida’s new coach and his ex-employer who’s now at Alabama had only positive things to say.

But according to The Palm Beach Post, things didn’t end on a high note for the two coaches.  Saban has a reputation for not being easy on his assistants.  Also, the Tide’s coach decided not to give Muschamp the defensive coordinator’s job while both were with the Miami Dolphins.

The Post picks up the story there with the help of Muschamp’s father:

“One example of the deterioration between the two was Saban reprimanding Muschamp’s mother over the phone during the offseason.

While Will Muschamp and his wife were on vacation in the Bahamas, his parents, Larry and Sally Muschamp, were babysitting their children in Coral Springs when an angry Saban called the house.  He needed a particular document from Muschamp, and ordered Sally to fax it to him.

Not finding a fax machine in her son’s home, Sally drove to an office supply store to send it.  Thirty minutes later, Saban had not received it and called again.  He had given her the wrong number, Sally said.

‘Where’s that fax?’ Saban barked.  ‘Get it to me now.’

Larry, by far the more easygoing of Muschamp’s parents, was irate.

‘That son of a b***h,’ he said.  ‘I’m surprised she didn’t say, ‘When it gets there, put it where the sun don’t shine.’  She didn’t.  But that’s Saban.  he and Will got crosswise in Miami for whatever reason.’”

Here’s guessing Muschamp will soon have a little talk with his parents to explain what is and what isn’t for public consumption.

Either way, Muschamp and “that SOB” Saban will meet up in Gainesville on October 1st.  The postgame handshake may prove to be downright Belichickian.



And now for the rest of the story (same article)

"They seemed to mend any wounds two years later when Saban was at Alabama.

After losing to Muschamp's Auburn team in the 2007 Iron Bowl, Saban sought him out on the field and hugged him, "which is unusual for Coach Saban," Larry noted. "They've been good friends ever since."

Mike Muschamp, Will's oldest brother, added, "If you ask Will for the guys who had the most influence on him, I think Nick would be the first guy he'd talk about." ____


While Saban is one heck of a recruiter/football coach..emphasis should be on recruiter...he has never been mistaken for a really nice guy. This should come as no surprise to anyone.


Not that what Saban did was excusable, but this was apparently several years ago. Not only can things change over a few years, but we all have something in our past we're not proud of.

Poor manners on Sabans part. At least Mama Muschamp won't be calling in to Paawwlll every week.


This is only one side of the story.


Don't really consider this to be the parents fault. First of all, Saban should never have been bossing around someone who isn't on his staff. Secondly, If Muschamp didn't leave a way to contact him in the Bahamas then he is to blame.



I agree. We haven't heard from Saban or Muschamp regarding this incident.

I also think Muschamp would have preferred his parents remain mum on this subject. Now this "SOB" thing will be a big story come October.



lol Saban isn't going to be commenting on this one I promise you that
