TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama coach Nick Saban says "there were no talks" involving him and the Texas job.

Saban said Tuesday after the third-ranked Crimson Tide's first practice for the Jan. 2 Sugar Bowl against No. 11 Oklahoma that such speculation is "kind of over."

He had said Friday night after agreeing to a new contract reportedly worth about $7 million a year that he planned to retire at Alabama.

Mack Brown announced his resignation the following day at Texas.

At Texas, several university regents and a former regent were involved in a meeting with Saban's agent last January to gauge the coach's interest in coming to Texas.

On the field, Saban says guard Anthony Steen will miss the bowl game after having shoulder surgery.
