"Pine Box" Tuberville moves on again

Sources: Cincinnati hires Texas Tech's Tommy Tuberville as new football coach
Tommy Tuberville will be announced as the new coach at Cincinnati on Saturday night, sources told Yahoo! Sports. 

Tuberville leaves Texas Tech after three seasons in Lubbock. Prior to that he was at Auburn for 10 years and Mississippi for four. He is expected to be announced as the Bearcats' new coach at a 6:30 p.m. ET press conference Saturday. He replaces Butch Jones, who Friday was introduce as the new coach at Tennessee. 

Tuberville would not seem like a natural fit at Cincinnati, but he has a relationship with athletic director Whit Babcock dating back to when both worked at Auburn. Tuberville had an undefeated season at Auburn in 2004 as the Tigers finished No. 2 in the nation. They were shut out of the BCS national championship matchup by USC and Oklahoma.
