Meet Jo-Ellyn Haynesworth, Mel Tucker Wife

Tucker talked to her on the phone before that first date and she was smitten.
Tucker revealed, “She was in law school, she was nice looking. I got to know her before we met. She never told me what I wanted to hear. I respect a person who tells you straight”

Then, Mel told his father that his playing days were over. Rather he would find something else to do although he didn’t know what. He tried everything from working as a substitute teacher, working in sales, and volunteering at his high school in Cleveland. Mel and Jo-Ellyn talked about his potential coaching career.
