Kaufman feels good about being able to anchor a secondary around three safeties with experience.
Art Kaufman watched very little videotape of last year’s Texas Tech defense after he was hired as the Red Raiders’ new defensive coordinator in January, meaning he went into the first spring scrimmage with a blank canvas.
It didn’t take long for his senior safeties, Cody Davis and D.J. Johnson, to fill in some of the blanks for him.
“When we came off the field after that scrimmage, I said, ‘Boy, those two guys back there play pretty good,’” Kaufman said.
