Senator Tommy Tuberville was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2020 and is currently serving his first term representing Alabama. However, his constituents still know him as Coach Tuberville, following his 40-year career coaching college football.
He spent 40-years in higher education as a college football coach, including stints as an Assistant Coach and Defensive-Coordinator at the University of Miami and Texas A&M, before being named the Head Coach at the University of Mississippi. In 1998, Tuberville was named Head Coach at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, where he lived for 11 years.
Tuberville lives in Auburn, Alabama, with his wife Suzanne, and they have two adult sons, Tucker and Troy.
