Jay Jacobs speaks
Here it is:
"As I do with every coach, I evaluate their job performance based on the body of work. That being the case, we will continue to support Coach Tuberville and the program as we always have, and are looking forward to the next four games."I requested an interview with Jay Gogue, the university president, earlier this week. His assistant, Brian Keeter, essentially declined that request and explained the decision thusly:
"Dr. Gogue and Jay Jacobs will meet with Coach Tuberville when the football season is over just as they have done in the past. In addition, any decisions on the overall direction of the football program or any other Auburn sports program are made at the recommendation of the athletics director."
