Howard University’s Football Coach Said NO to Sabin and Alabama

In January, Larry Scott decided to stay at Howard University and coach his own team. The choice was undeniably difficult, even though it really shouldn’t have been.

Alabama’s Nick Saban – the best coach in college football and the sport’s ultimate kingmaker – wanted Scott.

n Jan. 20, Scott elected to remain at Howard. The 44-year-old chose the job he had targeted for two decades on the sideline. This week, he debuts as Howard faces Delaware State to start a nonconference-only spring season.
