Nick Saban to Alabama 

Memphis-based sports agent Jimmy Sexton just got himself a nice belated Christmas present. His client, Nick Saban, is leaving the Miami Dolphins to lead the University of Alabama, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Saban's contract with the Crimson Tide is reportedly worth $35 million to $40 million over 8 to 10 years. It will make Saban one of the highest-paid head coaches on any level of football. For Saban, it’s a return to the Southeastern Conference, where he won a national championship with LSU. As the head coach at Alabama, he’ll face LSU every year.

Jimmy Sexton is a part of the Athletic Resource Management agency. His other head-coaching clients include SEC coaches Phillip Fulmer (Tennessee), Steve Spurrier (South Carolina), Tommy Tuberville (Auburn), and Houston Nutt (Arkansas). He also represents Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcels.
