Auburn Coach Tommy Tuberville is healthy, is not quitting his job and isn’t tired of coaching. Rumors to the contrary apparently have circulated enough on the Internet to prompt Tuberville to address them in the opening comments of Monday’s news conference.

“I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been here 10 years, I plan on being here 10 more and I’m looking forward to it,” Tuberville said. “We’re not playing well right now and this is a transition year, but we’re going to get better.”

Kentucky lost RB Derrick Locke for the season when an MRI exam showed torn knee ligaments Monday, a week after the Wildcats lost WR Dicky Lyons Jr. to a similar injury. DT Myron Pryor and LB Micah Johnson are hobbled by high ankle sprains.
