             === Tuberville bolts Texas Tech for Cincinnati job ===
 
 Cincinnati,  OH (Sports  Network) -  Tommy  Tuberville has  resigned his  head
 coaching position at Texas Tech to take a similar job at Cincinnati.
 
 "Coach  Tuberville's record  speaks  for  itself over  the  past 17  seasons,"
 Cincinnati director of athletics Whit Babcock said in a statement on Saturday.
 "It  also  speaks volumes to  the visibility  and leadership of our University
 that  we were  able to attract such  an accomplished coach to lead our program
 into the future."
 
 The  news of Tuberville's move came one day after Butch Jones announced he was
 leaving  the  Bearcats to become  the head  football coach at Tennessee.
 
 Cincinnati  named Steve Stripling interim head coach for the Belk Bowl against
 Duke.
 
 Tuberville led the Red Raiders to a 7-5 mark this season. Texas Tech will play
 Minnesota in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas on Dec. 28.
 
 The  58-year-old  Tuberville  will  become  the  head  coach  for  his  fourth
 collegiate  team. He went 25-20 at Ole Miss from 1995-98 and compiled an 85-40
 mark at Auburn (1999-2008) before going 20-17 over three years at Texas Tech.
