Why couldn’t they get along this way before Tuberville walked away?

Say this about the ending to the Auburn chapter of Tommy Tuberville’s coaching career: The divorce was more amicable than the marriage.
After 10 years of a relationship that too often looked better in front of the neighbors than it did behind closed doors, both sides are better off going their separate ways.

Tuberville can take a year off to reboot. Don’t be surprised to see him smiling and wisecracking in front of TV cameras as a color commentator or studio analyst.
