According to ESPN, Texas Tech has contacted Tubby Smith about its head coaching vacancy.
The Red Raiders have already met with a handful of other coaches about the job, including Oral Roberts’ Scott Sutton, Southern Illinois’ Barry Hinson, New Mexico State’s Marvin Menzies, Wyoming assistant Steve McClain and former UTEP and Nebraska head coach Doc Sadler. Chris Walker, the former Texas Tech assistant who served as interim coach after Billy Gillispie “resigned,” is also being considered.
Is Texas Tech becoming the land of former UK coaches? If so, they’re getting a major upgrade.
