On the All Things Covered podcast with Vikings DB Patrick Peterson, Urban Meyer told a story from 1990 when he called Nick Saban's house looking for a coaching job....

“I called his home, and Terry Saban answered the phone and I put on a 30-minute recruiting speech and I remember her saying, ‘Yeah, I can’t wait for him to talk to you,'” Meyer said. “Terry Saban will still laugh about that because she – I had her (won) over, I was coming to Toledo.”

Meyer recalled that he was at Illinois State making about $10,000 a year and, “I thought I might as well take a run at it, but about 3 weeks later I got hired at Colorado State and it all worked out.”

I wonder if Urban would be interested in coaching LSU men's basketball. He could probably figure it out.

I think Nick's wife is too old for CUM's tastes.
