AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A top University of Texas booster who arranged a telephone conversation with Alabama coach Nick Saban's agent says the talk lasted 45 minutes.

Tom Hicks, who also is a former University of Texas System regent, told the Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/1h9TJHJ) this week that he and Regent Wallace Hall Jr. probed agent Jimmy Sexton on whether Saban would be interested in the Longhorns' football coaching job. Hicks said Hall also insisted on participating in the call last January.

The call was first reported last week by The Associated Press.

Hicks lunched with Mack Brown two days after the Sexton conversation and asked if he had considered retirement. Hicks told the American-Statesman Brown ``had a passion for wanting to say.'' In Hicks words, ``I said, `Mack, I'm glad to hear this passion.'''
