LUBBOCK (AP)  Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville has left the gridiron and taken to the political airwaves.

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s conservative talk show on Fox earlier this week, the Texas Tech football coach said he thought President Barack Obama wasn’t releasing his birth certificate because there was something he didn’t want seen.

Speaking before the president released his birth certificate, Tuberville said the country’s got enough controversy and why didn’t the president just produce it.

In the coach’s words, “Obviously, there’s got to be something on there he doesn’t want anybody to see.” He also said the country “can’t keep going” the direction it is now.

Tuberville didn’t immediately return a call for comment Thursday. Tech athletics spokesman Blayne Beal says Tuberville was Hannity’s invited guest.
