— Former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville is considering running for Alabama governor in 2018. The 62-year-old says that he’s discussing his options with potential backers. Tuberville says he’s awaiting poll results that will gauge public support. Tuberville has never held elected office but describes his life in college football as “being in politics for the last 40 years.” He would enter an Alabama political arena wracked with turmoil. Gov. Robert Bentley faces calls for impeachment. Term limits bar Bentley from running again next year.
