Experience with coaching changes
Texas Tech men’s basketball is at a crossroads.
After a tumultuous four years with a revolving door of four different coaches, the Red Raiders are yearning for stability and continuity.
The program found success under Hall of Fame coach Bob Knight but sputtered under his son, Pat Knight.
They didn’t improve much with Billy Gillespie or interim coach Chris Walker.
However, Tubby Smith’s firing at Minnesota came at the right time for Texas Tech, a team struggling to climb out of the Big 12 cellar.
