Kingsbury future uncertain after Red Raiders lose
Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury’s future was uncertain after the Red Raiders finished their third consecutive losing season under their former quarterback.
Kingsbury, who has a 35-40 record in six seasons, said he expected to sit down soon with athletic director Kirby Hocutt. The coach wouldn’t provide any indication of what he expected to happen.
“Going to talk to Kirby and take it from there,” Kingsbury said after a season-ending 35-24 loss to Baylor.
Hocutt, who usually attends the coach’s postgame news conferences, wasn’t in the room after Saturday’s game.
“He’s been phenomenal with me, and supportive and given me everything I needed to be successful at Texas Tech,” Kingsbury said. “I have the utmost respect for Kirby and what he’s done for this university, and he’s the best AD in the country, we’re all lucky for him.”
Kingsbury still has two years left on his contract.
