It's funny and a bit sad the way you guys in the press (and commenters on boards) keep reminding us of Nick Saban's statement while at the Dolphins. I've got a life so I won't bother researching just how many coaches have denied interest in another position only to accept that position moments (hours, days) later. I will say that it is silly and a waste of time to ask an active coach (you know, one that has a job as a coach) if he'd be interested in coaching at this or that school.
I used that as an example because it was SO blown out of proportion. And it fit the point -- in the end it wasn't true, it didn't matter, and no coach is going to openly blow up his team or his recruiting by admitting that he's interested in another job.
I think you might have taken that one the wrong way. I used it as an example BECAUSE it had been overblown. Then I (thought) I made it clear that Saban was hardly alone in denying interest in jobs.
Sorry if that didn't come across as intended.
Thanks for reading the site,
