When you are in begining stage, You must keep him on leash while you play tug with your dog to keep him with you. The reason he is not coming back to you is he has learned to self satisfy himself with the tug or toy. To start Tug play you need to part the whole exercise & teach each drill separately. You must teach him first to "leave" or "out" (what ever the term you use for your dog) the object. When he is done with this, try to teach him to fetch objects(any). Now when the dog is completely understand both exercises, you can bridge both part in one. If he still is not willing to come to you then try to encourage him with your playful voice by calling his name,back away from him but keep a hold on the leash in your hand. Do not pull or jerk your dog with the leash, "Remember" the leash is used here just to keep him with you not for corrections. If he comes towards you even a little step dont forget to mark that behavior with voice marker "Yes" or "clicker" & immediately play little tug with him asa reward.Suppose he is not willing to come to you or dont want to leave the object ,you must stop the game right away(an examle of Negative Punishment).If you are consistent with these rules everytime when you play tug with him, he will pick up the rules of the game & will learn that its always fun to be engaged with you because when he is engaged & focused on you, the tug play goes on but if he is not engaged, the game is going to be over. If you properly teach this game to your dog you will see the dog is coming to you excitedly right after you realease the tug becuase its a huge fun for him to snatch it from you & play  than self satisfying him self.
Hope it was helpful for you.If you still have any queries you can write down here.

Thanks & Regards,
Asit Bhattacharya
