Red Raiders pick former quarterback to succeed Tuberville
Kliff Kingsbury spent a fun-filled 2012 season coaching up a dodging, darting Heisman Trophy winner who came to be known as Johnny Football.
Now he’s on to his next assignment: Trying to make Texas Tech football just as exciting.
Kingsbury can’t wait for the opportunity, even if his age — 33 — is a question mark. On Wednesday, Texas Tech made Kingsbury the youngest head coach at a BCS conference school, bringing him home to the place where he threw for 95 touchdowns a decade ago.
