(RNN) - The program director for Cleveland 92.3 The Fan said his station did not report that the Cleveland Browns are actively pursuing Alabama coach Nick Saban

The rumors started when two of his hosts were discussing the possibility of a new coach at Cleveland, where Pat Shurmur has a 5-17 record in his second season, said Andy Roth.

"It was a Saturday morning talk show, and two of our hosts were discussing that if the Browns couldn't attract an NFL coach, would they pursue a college coach like Nick Saban," said Andy Roth.

Rumors that the Browns' new owner Jimmy Haslam had targeted Saban for the job erupted on the internet.

Haslam had earlier announced Philadelphia Eagles president Joe Banner would replace Mike Holmgren as the team's president, which led to speculation about Shurmur's future.
