SMU spokesman Brad Sutton said Tubbs died Saturday. No cause of death was given.
Tubbs was a popular choice to lead the Mustangs because he'd spent 12 years as an SMU assistant before going to Oklahoma for two seasons under Kelvin Sampson. He was also a championship-winning high school coach in Dallas, a fertile recruiting ground SMU has always struggled to tap.
The Mustangs were 27-30 in Tubbs' two seasons. He was 232-42 at Dallas Kimball High School, including the 1990 Class 5A state championship.
The Oakwood, Texas, native is survived by his son, Andrew.
