Multiple reports are surfacing that Texas will hire Chris Beard as the new head basketball coach for the Longhorns.
This is obviously a terrific hire for Texas.
Chris Beard went to school at Texas, and has done an incredible job in his time at Texas Tech. Took the Red Raiders to a national title game, and an Elite Eight appearance. https://t.co/wFHJEenSkO

I mentioned this morning that this was a significant date because the buyout where Beard could be hired by another Big 12 program lowered to $4 million as of today. Now the search begins for a new head coach for Texas Tech basketball. Beard has left the program in significantly better position than when he arrived.
