Former Red Raider coach likens Lubbock to Iraq

Former Red Raider coach likens Lubbock to Iraq

Posted: Updated:

He may be gone, perhaps forgotten, but Tommy Tuberville can't put Lubbock in his rear view mirror.

The former Red Raider football coach recently fired at Cincinnati had this to say at a Pro-Am celebrity golf tournament in Alabama.

"You know you run me off at Auburn then ship me to Lubbock, Texas," he said. "I'm going to tell you what, that's like going to Siberia. Somebody asks me 'What's Lubbock look like?' I said it looked like Iraq."

Tuberville led the Red Raiders to a 29-22 record from 2010-2012.

He was hired by Cincinnati following his Red Raider stint, but was fired last season. 

He then tried out politics by announcing he would run for Alabama governor, but later dropped the idea.
