Tuberville's had that problem for a few years now. Remember the Jason Campbell era? 4 coordinators in 4 years? And then he lets go of Will Muschamp....who immediately gets scooped up by Texas and now is their next head coach, they thought so much of him? Staff continuity did Tommy in. that being said, 1 losing season in 10 years smells like a jumping of the gun. When I heard this, it wasn't surprising though. Remember the Petrino fiasco? They just been praying for a reason to cut bait. I don't know who they're going to get that's any better, however.

Yeah, the AD also said he had no idea it was going on. I can't believe that. They had 3 different meetings to sort it out and he had no idea? What, is Bobby Lowder running the institution now? C'mon, no one believes that. Tuberville is probably tired of the criticism every time he takes a step backwards. 10 years, 1 losing season, 1 unbeaten season. They've once tried to hire someone without his knowledge. Then backed off when he started winning. And now this. I can see why he wanted to leave.
