Tuberville not a candidate?

After an initial report Monday night, Aggie Websider has the latest on Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville's chances of becoming the next head coach of Texas A&M. Is he really the leading candidate? Or is he even on Byrne's list?

Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville's name has repeatedly survaced as the favorite to take over the reigns of the Texas A&M football program by several media outlets over the past few weeks. But multiple A&M officials have told Aggie Websider that Tuberville is not among the candidates for the position at this time.

Tuberville was an assistant coach at Texas A&M under R.C. Slocum, which may be one reason that his name is mentioned for the job opening once the season comes to a close. But whether it's a result of his large buyout or a lack of interest, it does not appear that he'll be heading back to A&M anytime soon.
