Pretty outspoken about his time with Auburn, Thursday represented the first time Tuberville has really opened up about his short tenure in Lubbock as the Red Raiders head coach.
“You run me off at Auburn and you ship me to Lubbock, Texas,” Tuberville said, according to 247Sports. “I’m going to tell you what, that’s like going to Siberia. Somebody asked me, ‘What’s Lubbock look like?’ It looked like Iraq.”
Tuberville coached in Lubbock from 2010-12, posting a combined 20-17 record en route to wining one bowl game. This came after an extremely successful 10-year run with Auburn that saw the Tigers win five bowl games and earn one national title.
Those who have been there would probably take issue with Tuberville’s comparison.
