AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs says he
hasn't been contacted by Texas A&M about interviewing Tigers coach
Persistent reports claim Texas A&M will pursue Tuberville to
replace Dennis Franchione.
But Jacobs reiterated that Tuberville is "our guy." And said
he didn't believe the coach would leave.
Jacobs said he plans to meet with Tubervill but no time was set.
Tuberville spent one season as the Aggies' defensive coordinator
He said earlier in the week that he planned to stay at Auburn
"as long as they want us here."
It would cost $6 million to buy him out of the seven-year, $18
million deal he signed after the Tigers went 13-0 in 2004.
Tuberville is making $2.6 million this season, which would increase
by $200,000 next year.
