Tommy Tuberville

In his third season as head coach of Texas Tech, Tuberville is regarded as one of the top coaches in the collegiate game.  In his first season at Texas Tech, the Red Raiders posted an 8-5 overall record and prevailed over the Northwestern Wildcats in the TicketCity bowl. He became the first coach in school history to win a bowl game in his first season. In just two seasons, Tuberville has assembled the top two recruiting classes in school history that placed the Red Raiders in the national top 25 in both 2011 and 2012.  Tuberville enters his 17th season as a head coach with a career record of 123-72 and his third season at Texas Tech with a mark of 13-12.  After starting his career coaching high school ball in Arkansas, Tuberville was an assistant briefly at Arkansas State University before moving up the ranks at the University of Miami to become the defensive coordinator. In 1994, he became the defensive coordinator at Texas A&M, followed by three years as the head coach at Ole Miss. He won AP Coach of the Year there in 1997, and in 1999, left for Auburn where he spent the next 10 seasons as the Tigers' head coach. Tuberville compiled a 85-40 record at Auburn, including a stellar undefeated 2004 season which ended in a victory at the Sugar Bowl. He won 5 SEC Western Division titles and coached 19 players who were selected in the NFL Draft while at Auburn. Four assistant coaches under Tuberville have gone on to become major Division I coaches: Bobby Petrino at Arkansas, Paul Rhoads at Iowa State, Gene Chizik at Auburn, and Will Muschamp at Florida.
