WATCH & LISTEN: Tommy Tuberville tells heckling fan to ‘go to hell... get a job’

It’s been a rough year for Tommy Tuberville in Cincinnati.

After starting the season 2-0, the Bearcats have lost five of the last seven. All five of those losses have come by double-digits, including the 20-3 setback to BYU Saturday.

Following the latest loss, the frustrations for Tuberville came to a boil as a heckler got the head coach to respond to his from-the-stand barbs, and respond the coach did.

As best as I could tell, the heckler was accusing Tuberville of stealing from the university and imploring him to retire. And, as this game was played in Cincinnati, one could only assume that the heckler was a Bearcat fan frustrated with the performance of his football program.

In his four seasons at UC, Tuberville has guided the Bearcats to a 29-18 record. While they’ve qualified for a bowl the first three seasons, they’ve also lost all three of those postseason games.

According to USA Today‘s 2016 coaching salary database, Tuberville is set to make $2.2 million this season, second only to Houston’s Tom Herman ($3 million) in the conference. After the first Saturday in November, the Bearcats sit fifth in the six-team AAC East.
