One of the most talked about Commissioners in NCAA Football will be in Lubbock on August 23 and speaking at the Red Raider Club Kickoff Luncheon. Brett Yormark will be speaking at the annual luncheon being held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

In a press release announcing Yormark's appearance, those attending will get to hear about where the Big 12 is heading and how Texas Tech fits into those plans.

“We’re pleased to welcome Commissioner Yormark to our annual Kickoff Luncheon,” Hocutt said. “In his short time leading our conference, Commissioner Yormark has pushed the Big 12 into a promising future, and I know Red Raider Nation will enjoy hearing his vision for our league moving forward.”

Recognized as one of the most dynamic and innovative executives in sports and entertainment, Yormark has secured the Big 12’s future in his short tenure, signing a lucrative television extension with Big 12 television partners FOX and ESPN, while also securing four new members in Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah. He was named the fifth commissioner of the Big 12 on Aug. 1, 2022.

Doors for the event open at 11:15 a.m. and the program starts at noon. Tickets are still available by calling 806-742-1196.
