Late Monday night, Texas Tech Athletics called a Tuesday news conference to introduce Tubby Smith as the new Texas Tech Red Raider Basketball head coach.

Smith was fired on March 25th after six years at the helm of the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Before coaching at Minnesota, Smith was the head coach at Kentucky for 10 years, winning a national championship in 1997-98. He has a career record of 511-226.

On Monday night, Texas Tech officials didn’t address the status of interim head coach Chris Walker, who is currently the only member of the Red Raider Basketball coaching staff. Walker, served as interim head coach of the Red Raiders last season after the resignation of Billy Gillispie.

Fellow Townsquare Media radio station, SportsRadio 1340 The Fan will have live coverage of the Tubby Smith hiring press conference at 2p this afternoon.
