Five years after Tommy Tuberville “voluntarily resigned” as Auburn’s head coach, another individual with the same surname is headed to The Plains.
Tucker Tuberville, al.com reports, has decided to become a walk-on for the Tigers football team. Tucker Tuberville is, of course, the son of the former AU coach.
A true freshman walk-on at Texas Tech last season, the quarterback followed his dad to Cincinnati after the elder Tuberville abruptly dumped the Red Raiders several months ago. The reason he decided to leave the Bearcats for the Tigers is unclear.
The younger Tuberville will not be eligible to play in 2013 but will be permitted to practice with his new Tiger teammates.
