Huizenga Says He Doesn't Feel Betrayed By Saban
Miami Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga confirmed at a news conference at the team's headquarters in Davie, Fla., that Coach Nick Saban had decided to leave the club to accept a contract offer from the University of Alabama.
"It is what it is," Huizenga said. "... There's a lot of reasons why decisions get made in life. But the net is, he's not coming back... and we have to move forward."
Huizenga said he met with Saban this morning at Saban's home. He said he never received an assurance from Saban that Saban would stay, and Saban never asked him for a raise to remain with the Dolphins. He indicated he didn't feel betrayed by Saban.
"I'm not upset because it's more involved than what you think," Huizenga said. "... I'm not upset with Nick. I think Nick is great.... I'm a Nick Saban fan."
Huizenga vowed that the Dolphins would spare no expense to build a winning team as they launch the search for their new coach.
