That's what I'm hearing Halo, but nothing official. Broke bread w/ austin alum, and they were like "if we want saban, we will get." But they weren't thrilled at the option. Oddly enough, folks still felt downright comfy w/ "no balls" Mack. He's a real ass kisser, and being coach of Texas is more figure head aywho, and assistants coach the team. From what I gather, Mack is well accepted by the high end boosters and alum. who is political correct in matters regarding the state of tex.
Of course, this coming from a couple of cracker heads - so who knows?
