Saban: Coaches, ADs had call with NFL on agents

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama coach Nick Saban says he and other college coaches have talked to NFL and NFL Player Association representatives about agents and their contact with players.

Saban said Thursday that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was involved in a conference call on the subject. He didn't identify the other participants but says they included other coaches he respected, athletic directors and a couple of agents.

The NCAA has been investigating alleged improper contact between agents and players at Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and North Carolina.

Saban has temporarily closed practices to NFL scouts, but says that wasn't because of the agent problem. He says it wasn't fair to have his players evaluated during two-a-day practices in triple-digit temperatures.
