Open Thread: Chris Beard Introductory Press Conference

Chris Beard comes home.

This was a flipping whirlwind of a weekend and it culminated with Chris Beard accepting the men’s head coaching position at Texas Tech yesterday after lunch.  Texas Tech is scheduled to hold a press conference at 10:00 a.m. this morning which is open to the public. You should be able to watch the press conference here.

Yesterday, Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt commented about hiring Beard:

“We are proud and excited to hire a coach of Chris’ caliber,” Hocutt said. “Our program achieved tremendous success this year and I see that as something Chris will build upon and take us to even further heights. We are thrilled to have him back home at Texas Tech.”
