Texas Tech graduate and former star quarterback Kliff Kingsbury was formally introduced Dec. 14 as the new head football coach in front of several hundred fans at United Spirit Arena.

“Well, it’s good to be home, it’s good to be home,” Kingsbury said. “(Texas Tech) is a place that helped shape me as a man and has given me so much. I’m just honored and humbled to be a part of this and be able to coach at your university. So, thank you.”

    Welcome home Kliff! So excited to have you back at Texas Tech, can’t wait for this next season. Love what your bringing back to Lubbock to get our swager back! I don’t know about you but what I think what would be great to get our swager back is some new uniforms, maybe throw in a red helmet or come up with some type of grey jersey. Can’t wait to see you back in the Jones good luck Coach and WRECK EM TECH!
