The Covington County Sheriff’s Office said DuBose, 65, was transported to a hospital but did not say if his injuries were life-threatening, AL.com reported.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, DuBose accidentally shot himself once in the abdomen just before 2 p.m. Monday, WSFA reported.

DuBose drove himself to Mizell Memorial Hospital in his hometown of Opp, Alabama. Then he was airlifted to a hospital in Dothan, WDHN reported.

DuBose coached the Crimson Tide from 1997 to 2000 and went 24-23 with two bowl losses. He was named Southeastern Conference coach of the year in 1999 when Alabama went 10-3 and won the SEC title.

The Tide went 3-8 in DuBose’s final season and the coach resigned amid a scandal involving an inappropriate relationship with his secretary, WDHN reported.

DuBose has coached at several Alabama high schools since leaving the Crimson Tide program, WDHN reported.
