I think we all assumed that....at least I did anyway. Nobody gets 5.1 million on a resignation. This is a knee jerk reaction by the AD to Alabama kickin Auburn around 36-0 in my opinion.

"He didn't resign," the paper quoted her as saying. "He was fired."


Duh. Surprise, surprise. :p

Not in the least surprising.

Welcome to the devious AU culture.

it sounds like petrino would be a good fit for all these dishonest people. Considering bama has another satan/saban, the state smells completely rotten.

We'll as my Awbunn season ticket holding co-worker says, "The word on the street is that the AD told Tuberville to fire all his assistants and Tuberville refused."

They wouldn't have paid him $5.1 mill if he had 'resigned'.

What a joke. Now they are scrambling for a coach...

I'm just laughing at the fact that we're getting this information from Mama Tuberville. :laugher:

Why do coaches capitulate and "resign" rather than getting "fired", if they still have to pay the buyout money? The school gets marginally better PR and the coach still loses his job, so the coach should get something.

Do they get kickback money for the resignation or "severance" pay for the assistants?

Petrino and Auburn sound like a good fit. Would it not be perfect for Petrino to leave 'sas after one year? Then Petrino and the Auburn athletic dept. can coconut each others heads around for a spell.

He was in meetings all the previous day with the AD and the president "to determine what he was going to do to fix the program." (that's a loose quote from Barnhart on 790) Clearly that was just a pretext to "which assistants are you going to fire." I think Tubervile probably just said "None. My assistants stay or we all go."

Nice. In reading between the lines, they said that Tuberville "resigned" during his third day of meetings with the AD and President. Three days of meetings? I can just see it now:

TT: "Can I go now?".

AD/PRES: "Um....not yet. Are you sure there isn't something you want to tell us?"

TT: "That I'm excited about coaching at Auburn next year?"

AD/PRES: "That not exactly what we were thinking....try again. And this time, say the exact opposite of what you just said."

TT: "Are you guys trying to make me resign so that you look better in the press?"

AD/PRES: "Absolutely not! But, if you were to resign, we would insincerely ask you to stay one time, and then accept your resignation. By the way, we've got all day here...."
