Tommy Tuberville took a personal photographer on his tour of the Middle East it was revealed Wednesday. Ivan Maisel appearing on the Paul Finebaum Radio Network Wednesday afternoon said Tuberville had an athletic department photographer as his traveling companion.
Todd Van Emst of Auburnâ€™s athletic department sent photographs to media outlets while he traveled with Tuberville to visit troops. The photographer snapped hundreds of photographs while on tour.
The revelation that Tubervilleâ€™s trip was accompanied by a photographer undermines any claim the seven finger salute wasnâ€™t staged.
