Hold out for $40 Million
The meteoric rise of the Major continues:
After helping steer Rice to its first bowl berth in 45 years, Owls offensive coordinator Major Applewhite was contacted by Alabama on Saturday to gauge his interest in joining the staff of new Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.He sounds pretty committed. Rest easy, Rice.
"I have been contacted, and I do have some interest, but I have not been offered the job," Applewhite said. "I'll sit down with my wife, Julie, and we'll make a decision this week.
"Right now, I'm still committed to Rice and the recruiting class we have coming here."
