Tech Adds Talented Coaches To The Staff

Monday morning brought about the official news of staff changes to the Texas Tech Football program.  Everyone associated with the program was disappointed with a 5-7 season and especially missing a bowl game.  After a lot of contemplation, Coach Tuberville decided it was necessary to make changes to his staff to help strengthen our core nucleus so that this program can return to the post-season as soon as possible.

Matt Moore and Otis Mounds have been dismissed from the staff while Sam McElroy will relinquish his coaching duties.  He is expected to remain on staff but his job duties have not been decided at this time.  The good news comes in the replacements - Terry Price and John Lovett.

One of the things Coach Tuberville was looking for in the new hires was experience and intensity and he certainly got it.  I’ve been told that both are excellent, hard-nosed coaches that aren’t afraid to stir things up.  That type of intensity is always good for a football team so it will be exciting to watch them starting this spring.
