Bill Battle, the University of Alabama Athletics Director, is keeping mum on Nick Saban's contract extension.
Several sports writers have tweeted about the AD's response to what is likely a constant question: what's going on with Saban?
Ralph D. Russo, an Associated Press sports reporter, tweeted this:
"Alabama AD when asked about Saban contract extension: "we're focused on recruiting and playing Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl." No follow-ups."
Battle apparently made a similar response to Brett McMurphy with ESPN and Dan Wolken with USAToday.
Paul Finebaum and Gil Brandt of NFL.comreported Tuesday night that Saban has been offered a contract extension with a salary of $7 million per year.
The furor over Saban's possible extension coincides with rumors about Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown and his future with the school. There have been other rumors this year that Saban could be heading to Texas but so far they have been unfounded.
