Tommy Tuberville, coach for the Texas Tech football team, has been named
in a federal lawsuit related to an alleged
hedge fund scam. Tuberville, along with his partner John David Stroud and eight investment
entities, are accused of taking more than $1.7 million from investors
in Alabama, Tennessee, and Arkansas.
Tuberville and Stroud were the cofounders of TS Capital Management, and
they allegedly lured investors into a hedge fund and other funds operated
by the company. Tuberville and Stroud are accused of instead using investors’
cash for personal expenses and making false statements to investors. The
lawsuit alleged that the pair “employed devices, schemes, and artifices”
to intentionally defraud their investors. Of the seven investors involved
in the suit, most had already asked for their cash to be returned and
have not yet been paid. At least two of those investors were told by Tuberville
that they would receive their money by October 7th, 2011.
The lawsuit alleged that Tuberville ran the hedge fund scam after leaving
Auburn in 2008.
