Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury has promoted first-year staff member David Raih to outside receivers coach for next week’s Holiday Bowl,
athletic department spokesman Blayne Beal confirmed Monday.
CoachingSearch.com reported Raih’s promotion earlier Monday, citing an unnamed source.
Raih has been the Red Raiders’ director of high school relations. Kingsbury hired Raih in January from Iowa, where he had been the offensive graduate assistant for three years, including one year as tight ends coach.
Raih also helped coach quarterbacks for two years at UCLA. He’s a former Iowa quarterback who started his career as a Hawkeyes student assistant.
Former Tech co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie coached the team’s outside receivers during the regular season, but Cumbie left the staff this month to become co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at TCU.
Inside receivers coach Eric Morris said last week he’d been overseeing all the receivers immediately after Cumbie’s departure.
