The new multi-year contract comes with an increase in annual compensation, raising Gibbs’ salary from $550,000 per year to $650,000, which now ranks sixth among Big 12 Conference assistant coaches.
“We are fortunate to have one of the top defensive coordinators in the country in Coach Gibbs,” Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “Since the conclusion of the regular season, finalizing this new contract to keep Coach Gibbs at Texas Tech has been a priority for myself and Kirby (Hocutt). We look forward to continuing to build one of the nation’s top defenses in the years to come under Coach Gibbs.”
I think this is great news for the consistency of this team and in particular the defense.
