Tuberville campaigning for next coaching job

Former Auburn Tiger coach Tommy Tuberville is already campaigning for his next coaching job. A story profiles the not-so-out-of-work coach. In it we learn he is enjoying his vacation by spending time with his family, which included a trip to the Gulf Coast. We also learn he’ll be speaking at spring clinics including one at Notre Dame. We can’t forget his potential television duties at ESPN. So, he’s got some things to keep him busy not least of which is counting all that buyout money. (Off topic question, what bank does Tuberville keep his millions in? I’m betting it isn’t Colonial Bank.)

That’s nice, but the real point of the article is that Tuberbville is tanned and rested and ready to go. The article could serve as a nomination for Tuberville to land a potential Miami vacancy. The Hurricanes need new leadership as the Randy Shannon experiment isn’t looking like a success, and Tuberville’s record is impressive, both at Auburn and as a Miami assistant.

Tuberville would also benefit being at a program like Miami—a place he wouldn’t have to exert so much energy securing his own rear from the regular threat of a coup.

Another school mentioned was Texas A&M. It is a possibility if things go badly for the Aggies, but Tuberville would be far less effective there due to the competition surrounding the Aggies; it would be a situation much like Auburn in the SEC with strong conference rivals in-state and in close proximity out-of-state. Such a scenario requires more hustle, could Tuberville hustle again on the recruiting trail? The Miami job makes the most sense, and it looks like Tuberville is ready if the job is offered.

    Tommy will do well wherever he goes. He succeeded in the SEC, so he can do well anywhere.

    I still say look out for Virginia. If Al Groh doesn’t step it up this year, he’s likely gone. Tubs would be perfect for that job, and I bet they would love to have him.

    I’m thinking O-Coord for UNA

    Virginia would be another good fit for Tuberville. If he asked me, I’d recommend he stay away from the Big XII and head to the ACC. Recruiting is less violent there, and the environment would better suit his personality.

    Just a joke, but he may want to wait out the Tennessee job which could come open again before December. I think The Old Football Coach may be getting tired of the impossible situation at So. Carolina too. Then again theres UAB. Maybe one day he could hold up 7 fingers against Memphis! Ha! Ha!

    The unanswered million dollar question: Why get rid of a proven successful head coach for a unsuccessful head coach? Is the easiest answer Dye and Lowder?

    You guys RIP on Tubbs all ya want But the truth is you didnt want him at AUburn! He was running ROUGHSHOD over the SEC for most of his career…. If your honest you know it to be true! Tubbs will do well where ever he goes just be glad he left!

    Alextsu…..A and M would be crazy not to enertian the thought of hiring Tommy. He would do well there.

    Hey Omni, take your meds. No one is ripping on Tubs. He was a good coach at Auburn. Probably the best one you guys have ever had. You guys are the ones who will be suffering over the change though. The Auburn leadership screwed the pooch on the handling of it all.

  12. 16

    That looks like an A&M fan there. I totally ignored that post. Sorry Omni, you were right. But I didn’t slam Tubs, and you still need your meds because you are still a crazy ass loon trolling on a Bama site. So you can go to Hell.

    Omni… it’s a shame we’ll never know how successful he truly would be going head-to-head against Saban in the same state. His recruiting stock dropped immensely. And ultimately his winning record did as well. Needless to say it wasn’t looking good, so instead of tarnishing the legacy he had against, mainly against Mike Shula (who Fulmer, Miles, and even Nutt also had a legacy against), I think it was best for him and Auburn fans that he DID leave just in the Nick of time before Nick Saban really put him in his place…

    Forgive me for being frank, but as Alabama progressively got better, his teams progressively worsened. You can’t tell me that’s not the honest truth.

    Omni, I am a Bama fan. I like to visit Bama sites. That is a pretty normal thing. I post to counter your garbage that you spew. We all know you guys are so jealous and envious of Saban and the direction he has Bama going in. People like you deserve to have it rubbed in your face. Which I think I am doing a good job of so far. I have all of you Auburn goobers here mad as hell. But I can see as much as you Auburn guys post here, you don’t have much of a life. Wish I could spend more time arguing with you guys, but I don’t obsess of everything like you and your Auburn inbreds here do. And you may really like your meds, but they are not working. But I don’t care who you are talking to. If you are coming to a Bama site to jump on Bama fans, you get what you deserve if someone pisses you off. ROLL TIDE ROLL, GO TO HELL AUBURN.

Before I go I will make ONE MORE relevant point for my case In 04 TUBBS shaped for boys in his back feild INTO 1st round DP for the NFL. Saban had a STudd named Andre Smith that looked like a OUTTA SHAPE RUMP SHAKER WITH HIS TITS SHAKIN UP AND DOWN THAT COMBINE FEILD. How many 1st rounders has NICK SHAPED? Seriuos Question Bammers??????

    Omni, you do you Auburn-laced education proud. Whatever dude. I can’t understand a thing you say. Are you foaming at the mouth or something? It must suck to be an Auburn fan like you.
