Assistants are off to visit recruits

One of Auburn's two jets, similar to the one pictured at left, has been dispatched to Mobile and onward to Palm Beach, Fla., for a recruiting visit.

If those assistants have been fired -- as has been reported on radio -- they certainly haven't gotten the memo.

UPDATE: Tuberville and Jacobs recently (3:30ish?) together via car and headed upstairs ... presumably for more discussions. I'm guessing they were returning from the president's office.

i don't know if anyone's raised this point, but can you imagine the crowing from the bama nation if tuberville is fired? i'm fairly sure that they'll be saying that croom, fulmer and tuberville were "sabanized," regardless of the facts on the ground.

I hear what you're saying Scott, but I decided a while back to ignore 100% of everything spewed from the UAT faithful. I even moved back to AU about 2 mos ago to TRY to avoid them.

All the bammers I know are in the same position that the AU Tiger faithful were in a couple of years back. We all wanted Bammer to keep Mike Shula back then. They all want us to keep Tuberville now.

What can I say, guys?

I don't have anyone telling me about Leach/Petrino. Can't tell you anything about that.

Assuming that's true, Auburn's plan to fire Tuberville better be in place.

Otherwise, they're in a remarkably compromised position from a contractual standpoint.

Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

The Seeker, how are you so familiar with what Nall has done this season?

Cobra, I don't really see Ensminger as part of the problems, but it is possible. I would think Knox would be on the hit list if an offensive position coach was to go.

I have just got back from work. I hung out there about 5 hours and it appears there has been no news except a plane ride for coaches.

It does appear that rumors are flying about, but I don't put too much faith in them.

My guess is Tuberville will be back with a revised contract.

Otherwise, they're in a remarkably compromised position from a contractual standpoint.

If it was an "unofficial/unsanctioned" contact with plausible deniability, I think AU would be in the clear. Regardless, I pretty much expect a change to be made.

An unofficial Auburn representative has reached out to people close to Arkansas' Bobby Petrino and Texas Tech's Mike Leach to gauge their interest in succeeding Tommy Tuberville if the school decides to fire him, a source familiar with the contacts told The Birmingham News

It was Rhoads and Willis.

3:32 PM

Seeker, I was asking what Nall has done, not the results of the offensive line, which were highly a result of Franklin's philosophy of smaller quicker linemen. I have no doubt about Nall's ability to coach linemen, but I would be interested if he has been something disruptive. I just hadn't heard that.

Blogger Brad said...

So after taking this all in from 1,000 miles away over the last few days, I finally decided to sign up and share my worthless thoughts:

Tubs is gone. You don't go through all of this without some public affirmation before now. It's just been too much to overcome, and to be honest, it's probably the best thing just to get rid of the self-inflicted headache that is the AU administration.

Mike Leach and Bobby Petrino are both HORRIBLE ideas. I just don't see how either would fit well on the Plains or that our fan base would get behind them whole heartedly.

If either was contacted without an official, I will be highly disappointed in the administration. Nothing is more important at Auburn than our academic standing. If we don't have that, we don't have a school worth going to and therefore no football program that will compete. Remember, SACS was highly upset about the 2003 fiasco and we nearly lost our accredidation.

So in conclusion, I know nothing, except that Auburn could use a really good PR manager.

I leave you with the soothing though of:

"The dude abides."

Petrino is the real deal. Problem is, he would be a fool to jump this soon.

As far as jobs, imo, it is always better to be at the "Named" state school. i.e. Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Georgia. So, from that standpoint, Arkansas would be better than Auburn. Might not count for much.

Rumor de moment

Tommy Tuberville is out as Auburn's football coach, The Birmingham News has learned.

An official announcement could come today.
Tommy Tuberville
Tuberville was 85-40 in 10 years at Auburn, and is 110-60 in 14 years as a college head coach. His final season at Auburn ended with a 36-0 loss to Alabama last Saturday to finish off a disappointing 5-7 record.

Tuberville met with Athletics Director Jay Jacobs on Tuesday and Wednesday. He met with university President Jay Gogue on Monday.

Tuberville is fourth all time in wins in Auburn. He was the fourth-longest tenured coach in school history. Tuberville's best season was also Auburn's best season. The Tigers were 13-0 in 2004.

It's certainly plausible.

Can't confirm just yet.

p.s.: I love haters. I do.

I'm OK with posting those links right now. It's a highly unusual situation.

bill cameron really doesn't care about what petrino's agent says...don't forget bob petrino

If Tuberville really is fired, it brings down the attractiveness of Auburn's Head Football Coach as a job. No one good is going to want to take a job under an uneven administration that will cut a coach at the knees after one bad season. Auburn has enjoyed unprecedented success under Tuberville. This insecurity is why we can't acheive consistent success.

Ok all, now, the question begs, who is Auburn getting. Better have that lined up or else it could get really ugly.

Let's not go into total panic and say the coach has to be here in 48 hours.

Breathe ... breathe.

He might be, but he might not. Remember the other guys, they had to wait a while, and it worked out.

Thanks, Jay for letting us hang with you in these days. I appreciate your efforts on the blog, man. Sincerely.

I just hope Auburn doesn't lose its SACS accreditation before I graduate in May.

If it is Petrino, AU is screwed in recruiting. who will believe the guy stays. We will be happy with a great coach but seriously, we all stuck the "he's not staying" stats in the bammers faces when saban came.

Hope it is butch.
