Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Kliff Kingsbury

Kliff Kingsbury made a splash offensively this season in the SEC at Texas A&M. Of course 98% of that splash was from Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, but Kingsbury’s offense was behind the quarterback’s success.

Now Kingsbury and his sunglasses will be making their way home to Lubbock next season. The Red Raiders announced through Twitter, in an exceptionally well filmed video, that Kingsbury would be the next head coach replacing Tommy Tuberville.

Kingsbury’s return will be a very welcome one in Lubbock. Tommy Tuberville was never really accepted into the Red Raider family and his coaching style didn’t fit with the offense happy fans. With Kingsbury, the Red Raiders are sure to have plenty of offensive prowess.

Kingsbury was the Red Raiders quarterback from 1998-2002 and set TTU, Big 12, and NCAA records with 12,423 yards, a 65.3 percent completion rate, 95 TDs, and 40 interceptions. Oh yeah, and 2 of those years were under Mike Leach.

It’ll be fun to see how Tech’s offense changes under Kingsbury and how Kevin Sumlin replaces him at A&M.
