Former Auburn Coach Tommy Tuberville to Run for U.S. Senate in Alabama

Former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville will be running for United States Senate in the great state of Alabama.

He’ll be doing so with President Trump’s former Press Secretary and adviser Sean Spicer on his campaign team as well. Making a strong run to unseat Democrat Doug Jones.

The longtime Auburn coach had considered running for governor in 2017. Instead, he will begin his political career pursuing the senate seat currently held by Democrat Doug Jones. The Republican primary for the seat is March 3, 2020. If Tuberville makes it through, the general election is Nov. 3, 2020.

Jones won the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions in 2017 when Sessions became U.S. Attorney General. In a bitter, contentious special election campaign, Jones finally beat Roy Moore by half a percentage point.

Tuberville, 64, won 159 games in a 21-year head-coaching career at Ole Miss, Auburn, Texas Tech and Cincinnati. Throughout his time on the sidelines, he was known for his easy-going style.
