Texas Tech announced a one-year extension and increase in annual compensation for Head Football Coach Tommy Tuberville. The new deal will keep Tuberville in Lubbock through the 2015 season.
“I am grateful to the university for believing in our vision for this football program and I am thrilled to be a Red Raider,” said Tuberville. “My family and I have been embraced warmly by this community and all of Red Raider Nation, and I believe that unity was a major contributor in us winning eight games the first year along with a bowl championship. Texas Tech is a tremendous place, and together we can achieve our goals of graduating student-athletes and winning football games.”
