University of Alabama trustees approved the eight-year, $32 million contract for football coach Nick Saban late last week. Under the contract, Saban does not have to speak or appear at more than 15 engagements unrelated to endorsements, such as alumni and booster clubs.
Among other contract incentives are a country club membership, two cars, a luxury box at Bryant-Denny Stadium and up to 25 hours of yearly flight time for personal travel in a noncommercial plane.
Prosecutors have filed two charges against suspended Florida player Ronnie Wilson in an early April shooting incident.
Wilson, 19, allegedly fired a semiautomatic weapon into the air after being chased following a nightclub incident. He was charged with battery and discharging a firearm in public. Arraignment was set for July 3. Wilson was a redshirt freshman offensive lineman for the Gators last year.
