Texas Tech coach discusses faith, football
“That’s big in my life, my family’s life,” said Tuberville, an active member of the Auburn, Ala., church during his time as Auburn University’s head coach.
“There’s something other than football, I believe, and so we’ll be active in the church here. Actually, I want to bring in a full-time team chaplain here in our football program,” he added.
“We’ve done that every place I’ve been. We don’t push any religion. … I just believe, give players the opportunity to be involved.” The chaplain will visit with players about home life and family and give them “somebody they can relate to.”
FeedbackGeorge, did you see the part where it said, “We don’t push any religion?” What’s it hurt to have a guy come talk to them about their home life or family if they need someone to talk to. The military is a tax supported institution, should they not have chaplains either?Monty JonesAlamedaNorman, Oklahoma
