Kings­bury fu­ture un­cer­tain af­ter Red Raiders lose

The Sun Herald (Sunday) - - Sports -

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.
