Tuberville: Patience is key for a coaching career

Asked what has been the biggest lesson that he has learned over the course of his entire coaching career, Tommy Tuberville noted that learning patience has been one trait that has stuck out to him that is needed for a succesful coaching career..

"I had to learn patience," Tubs explained. "This is a hard business because you're competing with a lot of different teams."

"And it's about people. Dealing with different people every year. I don't care if you've got a hundred on your team and you have no seniors and they're all coming back the next year. It's a different challenge because these young guys are growing up."

Tubs noted that bringing guys from all different backgrounds, and areas together to work toward a common goal is something that every coaching staff is trying to do, and doing that successfully requires a balance between being patient and also having a sense of urgency to get your staff and players all on the same page.

In the beginning of the video, Tubs also explains what attracted him to the Cincinnati job and why he thought it was a good fit for him and his family.
