Watch It Now, Here He Comes....

WJOX is reporting that it's a done deal.  35 minutes 'til we know for sure.

Update [2007-1-3 11:8:5 by Todd]:

The Tuscaloosa News is reporting that Saban is our man:

TUSCALOOSA | Nick Saban is on his way to Tuscaloosa.

Saban is en route to a private airport to fly to Tuscaloosa on Wednesday morning, where he is expected to formally accept the job to become the Crimson Tide's 27th head football coach, ending a month-long wait by Tide fans and nationwide media frenzy to see who would replace Mike Shula.

Saban will fly to Tuscaloosa today with University of Alabama athletics director Mal Moore via private jet, and would be formally introduced at a news conference either later today or Thursday.

A formal announcement from the Miami Dolphins and owner H. Wayne Huizenga is expected this morning. Huizenga agreed to give Saban a 10 a.m. ET deadline to meet with him about staying with the Dolphins or heading to the Tide.

So are:

ESPN

Sun Sentinel

Miami Herald

Still no official word from Alabama, Miami, or Saban himself. Come on, news conference...


He doesn't look a thing like Jesus...
