Former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville has decided against running for governor of Alabama in 2018. Tuberville had filed paperwork to seek the Republican nomination earlier this year. Since then, a scandal brought down disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley, and an Auburn alum, Kay Ivey became governor. Reflecting on his brief foray into politics, Tuberville said he enjoyed it, but decided "there are better people to run for governor, more qualified."
