Tommy Tuberville has reached nearly the highest heights as a college football coach. In 20014, he went 13-0 at Auburn (but got left out of the BCS), where he rung up a 52-30 record in SEC play. More recently, he led Cincinnati to nine-win seasons in 2013 and 2014.
But the Bearcats are 4-8 this year, plus he told a fan to “go to hell,” a classic sign that a coach may not be long for his job.
So it is with not much surprise we learn today that Tuberville and Cincinnati are parting ways after four seasons, as first reported by Football Scoop.
Tuberville, 62, has been a head coach since 1995, when he took over at Ole Miss. His only respite was from 2008-10, after he left Auburn and before he took the Texas Tech job. He has a career record of 159-99.
