There are several job openings in the SEC and there’s no reason to suspect that Tommy Tuberville wouldn’t jump at the chance to coach at one of them. Tuberville had success at both Ole Miss and Auburn during his time in the SEC, however, he may have cost himself a shot at one of those jobs with his headset ripping off that cameras caught last weekend.
Tuberville offered an extremely weak explaination for his actions.
“He was on the field, and I reached to grab him and pull him off,” Tuberville said. “When I pulled, I missed his shirt and I grabbed his (headset) and his microphone ripped off his head. I was trying to get him off the field. “He’s out on the field, and we’re trying to get him off. I missed his shoulder, and grabbed his … . It wasn’t anything to it.”
Tuberville admitted later that he got caught up in the “heat of battle”.
Tuberville was reprimanded by the Big 12, but losing out on a job in the SEC would be a bigger punishment for the current Red Raiders head coach.
