Nom-Saints: Dolphins offer coaching job to Saban

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- The Miami Dolphins offered their coaching job Wednesday to LSU's Nick Saban, the favorite for the position since Dave Wannstedt resigned last month.

Louisiana State athletic director Skip Bertman said Saban told him of the offer late Wednesday afternoon, but did not divulge details of the deal or indicate if he planned to accept.

A Dolphins source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that Saban's agent, Jimmy Sexton, and team owner Wayne Huizenga met Wednesday. The source did not know if a deal had been struck.

``They made him an offer. I don't know what it is,'' Bertman said. ``I didn't even ask him. Now he has a decision to make, and it's a tough decision. ... My feeling is it's 50-50.''

The offer was reported earlier by ESPN.com, which did not identify its sources.

Saban has been courted as a potential NFL coach for nearly a decade. He was approached previously by at least five teams, including a year ago by Atlanta and Chicago, but turned down every offer.

He was the first of three candidates the Dolphins have interviewed. Former Oakland Raiders coach Art Shell interviewed Monday, and interim Miami coach Jim Bates met with Huizenga on Tuesday.
