Tommy Tuberville, TA former college football coach, on Tuesday won a seat in the United States Senate.
The 65-year-old, who is new to politics and a Republican challenger and defeated the incumbent senate, Doug Jones in Alabama.
Tommy Tuberville, has been out of coaching since 2016, said that he was motivated to enter politics by Donald Trump’s 2016 election.
He guided Auburn to an 85-40 record from 1999-2008, including an undefeated season (13-0) in 2004 when the Tigers were denied a berth in the BCS National Championship Game after finishing third in the BCS rankings.
Tuberville also coached at Ole Miss (1995-98), Texas Tech (2010-12), and Cincinnati (2013-16), finishing with an overall record of 159-99 and 13 bowl appearances.
However, Trump has stated that he would go to the United States Supreme Court to challenge the counting of the presidential election votes.
Trump earlier claimed that he had won the US election, despite the fact that the final results has not been announced.
Trump said in an extraordinary speech from the ceremonial East Room of the White House, “We did win this election.”
“For the good of this nation, this is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in a proper manner. So, we will be going to the US Supreme Court,” Trump said.
