dfw Tuberville Calls Sideline Outburst UnfortunateBest Young Athlete In DFW?

LUBBOCK (AP) – Tommy Tuberville took full responsibility for losing his cool with a Texas Tech graduate assistant along the sideline during Saturday’s win over Kansas.

The third-year coach said Monday he had watched a replay of his outburst after the 41-34 victory and saw what had fans upset. He called his actions “unfortunate” and said he had apologized to Kevin Oliver, who works with special teams.

Video of the confrontation went viral on the Internet on Saturday. It shows Tuberville angrily facing Oliver and appearing to strike him after the Red Raiders had difficulty getting the right personnel on the field.

Tuberville said he did not strike Oliver. He said he reached and pulled on Oliver’s headset.
