Strong pitching, defense help Tech snap Mountaineers' 10-game run
Tim Tadlock had to pause to keep the emotion inside.
Earlier Thursday afternoon, the Texas Tech coach received a six-year contract extension.
“We didn’t have to talk about it long. All (Kirby Hocutt) had to do was ask,” Tadlock said. “We want to keep this thing moving in the right direction. ... All of us, we know we have something special here.”
After receiving his contract extension, Tadlock joined Texas Tech athletics director Kirby Hocutt on the field to receive the Big 12 regular-season championship trophy.
