Kliff Kingsbury Introduced as Texas Tech Head Football Coach on Twitter Video

Texas Tech has named former Red Raider quarterback Kliff Kingsbury as their head football coach.

Kingsbury, a New Braunfels, Texas native, played for Texas Tech from 1998 through 2002, and was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2003, and played with several other NFL and NFL Europe teams.

The 33-year-old coach got his start in coaching as an assistant with the Houston Cougars, and then moved on to Texas A&M in 2012, where he served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

One of Kingsbury’s athletes at Texas A&M, Johnny Manziel, became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy earlier this month.

Texas Tech Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt made the announcement around 5:45 Wednesday afternoon by posting this video on his Twitter account introducing Kingsbury as head coach.

Kingsbury replaces Tommy Tuberville, who left Texas Tech for the University of Cincinnati.

Tech has named offensive line coach Chris Thomsen as the interim coach to take charge of the team for their bowl in Houston on December 28th.
