TUSCALOOSA- Nick Saban is breaking rumors, signing an extension at Alabama, and staying put.

Friday night, the school announced on its Twitter account that the coach reached "a longterm agreement" to remain with the Crimson Tide.

The agreement quells speculation that Saban would take over at Texas if Mack Brown steps down. Saban, who turned 62 on Oct. 31, has led the Tide to three national championships in the past four years. No. 3 Alabama will play Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.

Saban received an eight-year deal in March 2012 worth about $5.6 million annually.
