Tuberville, who is in his ninth season as head coach at Auburn, has a 77-32 record as coach of the Tigers.
"I am very proud for that," he says on being inducted into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame. "I am excited. I grew up as a young kid in the state of Arkansas who wasn't very talented in a lot of things. I guess I just had a pretty good upbringing from good parents, Christian parents. They taught me work ethic. I had perseverance.
"I am probably the least likely to accomplish anything with my abilities other than my perseverance," Tuberville adds. "I do appreciate the honor and I look forward to bringing my family--my kids and mother over to Little Rock."
Tuberville posted a 25-20 record in four seasons at Ole Miss prior to taking over the Auburn job, where he has won a variety of national coach of the year honors as head man of the Tigers.
Auburn is currently 6-3 heading into Saturday's Homecoming contest vs. Tennessee Tech. Kickoff time is 1:30 p.m.
