Cincinnati AD defends Tommy Tuberville over exchange with fan

Tommy Tuberville

Cincinnati’s athletic director Mike Bohn defended head football coach Tommy Tuberville over the coach’s exchange with a fan following Saturday’s loss to BYU.

After the game, a fan heckled Tuberville as the coach was walking off the field. Tuberville had a seemingly inappropriate response, as he yelled back to the fan to “get a job” and something a little worse (video here).

In his statement on the matter, Bohn excused Tuberville’s behavior by saying the coach was put in a “no-win situation.”

Though Bohn described the response as “out of character” for Tuberville, no apology was given. That’s disappointing, considering the head coach of a college football program needs to be held to a high standard and should know better than to engage with a heckler.
