Former college football coach Tommy Tuberville has recaptured a U.S. Senate seat for Republicans by defeating Sen. Doug Jones in Alabama.
Tuberville spent 21 seasons as a college football coach with four programs. He coached at Ole Miss from 1995 to 1998 before spending nearly a decade at Auburn (1999-2008). The Tigers went undefeated en route to an SEC title in 2004 and finished No. 2 in the country.
He went 85-40 overall at Auburn and had great success against rival Alabama, finishing with a 7-3 record against the Crimson Tide. During the lead-up run for Senate, he joked to Alabama fans that they should thank him, saying, “If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t have Nick Saban.”
