Coach Tuberville denies rumors that he regrets accepting Tech coaching job

Posted: Updated:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville has denied rumors today that he is unhappy with his decision to accept a coaching position in Lubbock. The online rumors stem from a Facebook post by the popular sports web site SportsByBrooks.com:

Citing unnamed sources, the Sports By Brooks Facebook post stated the following earlier today:

"Tuberville is absolutely miserable at Texas Tech. Wishes he hadn't heeded advice of Under Armour folks and taken TTU job. One of his complaints is ADs Myers/Hocutt are powerless to keep admins and boosters in check. Leach refused to kiss their rings, and you see what that got him. #tubs has told multiple sources he wishes he'd taken USF job over TTU."

Coach Tuberville made the following response to KCBD NewsChannel 11:

"I don't know where that came from.  How about this weather here? Whoever wrote that blog needs to come down here. He probably doesn't have weather this nice.

"But no, this is a great place. We're gonna build something here that people can be proud of, but I think that comes from a lot of people who probably would hope we would pack up and leave.

"We're looking forward to it. It's gonna be a tough challenge the next couple of years getting it to where we want to get it to, but I would imagine that's coming from across the river somewhere that they would hope I would go somewhere else."
