AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -Tommy Tuberville stepped down as coach at Auburn on Wednesday, following a disappointing season that culminated in the Tigers' first loss to Alabama in seven years.
Players were informed at a team meeting in the football complex Wednesday evening, and Auburn athletic spokesman Kirk Sampson confirmed Tuberville's resignation.
Tuberville did not immediately return a call to his cell phone.
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 that snapped their six-game winning streak in the Iron Bowl.
e 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.
