Texas Tech’s decision to hire Billy Gillispie as head men’s basketball coach was a great move. For the last few years, the Red Raiders’ program has been heading in the wrong direction and Gillispie is the kind of coach that can turn Lubbock back into a basketball town.
We knew it was only a matter of time before a school took a chance on a talented coach like Billy Clyde Gillispie. Gillispie and Lubbock should be a perfect fit. Let's hope he signed the contract this time.
I guess it should not come as too much of a surprise that Pat Knight was fired as head coach of Texas Tech this morning. A record of 13-18 and 5-11 in the Big 12 will not cut it in Lubbock or at most other big conferences.
