    Link Texas Tech hires Texas A&M Offensive Coordinator for head coach

    http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    "Texas Tech hired one of its own Wednesday, bringing back former Red Raiders quarterback Kliff Kingsbury to become the head coach."

    "Kingsbury was the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M, coaching Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, this year and was the first in a string of record-setting quarterbacks for the Red Raiders under former coach Mike Leach."

    "He has never been a head coach and at 33, he'll be one of the youngest in major college football."
    If God wanted me to be humble, he would have sent me to Auburn.

    I'm sure he will do fine there. Good luck Kliff.

    Texas Tech hires Texas A&M Offenisve Coordinator for head coach

    He is awfully young. He will need to hire a good defensive coordinator to really be successful.

    That really didn't stop Mike Leach from being successful at Tech.

    He is very young, and inexperienced...but every coach needs to hire good offensive and defensive coordinators to be successful...

    I wonder how much drop off aTm will see on offense next year.

    Considering they're losing two (likely) top10 tackles, three of four RBs (iirc) and a ton of other players, and now Kingsbury - I suspect next year will be a step back for A&M.

    Great hire for Tech. As someone mentioned in the Coaching Carousel thread, he should be loyal to TT as an alumnus. Add his loyalty with his age, the only missing piece to a lifetime coach is success. If he can be successful at TT, he'll be there a long, long time.

    In relation to the necessary defense, I think he learned this year at A&M what a stout D can do. Bama saw first hand that defense wasn't anything to laugh at.

    We might lose one of the tackles (Luke Joeckel), Jake Matthews isn't leaving. We are definitely losing Patrick Lewis (he's a senior) and are replacing him with Mike Matthews (Jakes brother). We're losing 1 RB and getting in 2 RB transfers, one from Oregeon named Tra Carson who was a 3 or 4* and Brandon Williams from OU who was a 5*.

    On defense, we're losing a 2 LB's and a DB that were great contributors and possibly Demontre Moore.

    Kingsbury did a pretty good job for us, but he's just 3 years removed from being a G.A. at UofH and this past season was his first as an OC. Prior to coming to A&M he was a Co-OC with Jason Phillips who's now at SMU.

    Sorry, I was obviously mistaken - thanks for the correction, MW!

    Yes. Mike Sherman did an excellent job recruiting that offense over the years. I'm not sure how Sumlin's recruiting stacks up and whether they have to reload or rebuild. But a drop off should be in store for 2013. You don't just replace that kind of depth and talent and expect to keep right on clicking along.

    Defense? Tech's in the Big WTF, where they don't need no stinkin' dee-fense.
