Players were reporting to the football complex for a team meeting Wednesday evening, and Tuberville did not immediately return a call to his cell phone.
Auburn officials would not confirm Tuberville's departure.
He signed a two-year contract extension through 2013 after last season that would pay him about $3.3 million annually. The current buyout would be some $6 million.
Tuberville was 85-40 at Auburn, including a 13-0 season in 2004 when the Tigers finished No. 2 in the nation. But Auburn finished 5-7 this year, and the Tigers' worst season in 10 years ended last Saturday with a 36-0 loss to No. 1 Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
The Tigers' offense finished the season ranked 110th nationally in scoring, 102nd in total yards and 100th in passing yards. The finale was the first time Auburn had been shut out in 75 games, dating back to a 23-0 loss to Southern California to open the 2003 season.
