“We are excited about the addition of Coach Tuley to our staff, Seminole State College president Jim Utterback said. “He brings with him a legacy of earned respect and demonstrated integrity that is the hallmark of the type of athletic programs we want at Seminole State College.”
While serving as the Capitol Hill head coach, Tuley has worked for 13 seasons at the college level as an assistant at Redlands Community College in El Reno. He most recently served one season on the staff at Oklahoma City University.
