Former Alabama Football Coach Shoots Himself. Here’s What We Know
Former Alabama head football coach Mike Dubose accidentally shot himself on Monday afternoon.
Dubose was working on his farm in Alabama when he shot himself in the stomach. Following the incident, Dubose drove himself to a local hospital, but then had to be airlifted to a hospital in Dothan about an hour away from his farm.
The good news is that the 65-year-old former Crimson Tide player and coach is expected to be OK, although he remains hospitalized and his exact condition is unknown at this time.
Dubose was the head coach at the University of Alabama from 1997–2000, which included an SEC championship in 1999, with a team led by star players such as Shaun Alexander and Freddie Millons. Dubose was fired following a 3-8 season in 2000, right before the Crimson Tide was subsequently hammered with NCAA sanctions.
Dubose was recently the head coach at Division III Millsaps before finishing his college coaching career as an assistant at Memphis.
