Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian didn’t want to replace Nick Saban he had no reason to leave Texas Longhorns football….

My only surprise in Steve Sarkisian’s disinterest in replacing Nick Saban is that he needed a full minute to consider the possibility.

I would’ve thought Sarkisian decided within 10 seconds that he’d rather remain Texas’ coach than bolt in favor of being Saban’s heir. Perhaps Sarkisian used the other 50 seconds to negotiate his Texas contract extension and raise.

Sarkisian admitted in a recent interview with ESPN that he briefly considered Alabama’s vacancy. The idea was gone in 60 seconds.

“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t think about it,” Sarkisian told ESPN. “But it took me all of about 60 seconds to say, ‘Yeah, I’m not doing that.’”
