Tommy Tuberville Joins ESPN As College Football Analyst

An ESPN sign hanging that's very old

A former college football coach has landed at ESPN.

Tommy Tuberville retired from coaching after the 2016 season.

He led the Cincinnati Bearcats to a 4-8 record before resigning from his position. Less than a year later, he's ready to get back in the game.

Sort of.

ESPN announced it hired the longtime college football coach to an analyst position.

From the release:

ESPN has added to its decorated college football game analyst roster with the signing of former college football head coach Tommy Tuberville.

With 159 victories in more than 20 seasons, including an undefeated season, five SEC Championship game appearances, multiple Coach of the Year awards and an American Athletic Conference Championship, Tuberville brings an experienced coach’s viewpoint to the booth. Tuberville will call games each week across ESPN or ABC with his broadcast partners to be named soon.

Tuberville announced the move in a video.

Tuberville coached at Ole Miss, Auburn, Texas Tech, and Cincinnati during his 20-year college football career.
