"The Million Dollar Man," Nick Saban
I understand in a world of mercenary coaches that more money is usually the answer, but if Saban and Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga are as close as they seem to be, what makes anyone thing that Saban is interested in the rebuilding process when, in the NFL, he can just buy success? Well, I guess you could buy success at Alabama (again), like they do at USC and Ohio State, but it's easier to do in the pros, and you generally have more money to spend.
$40 million dollars is a lot of money. I don't see how that kind of money doesn't talk, but maybe Nick is going to get a nice phat raise in the off-season once "Smokey Smoke" Ricky Williams comes back from Canada and passes a piss test. Or maybe he finds the backfield of a healthy Daunte "Fumbles" Culpepper, a sober Ricky Williams, and Ronnie Brown a potent combination (a-la the Saints of Brees, McAllister, and Bush).
All I know is that for $40 million dollars, I'd coach football in Hell.
