Tubby Smith agrees to terms to become Texas Tech head coach

Monday April 1st, 2013

According to multiple reports, Tubby Smith has agreed to terms to become the next head basketball coach at Texas Tech. Smith was fired by Minnesota on March 25th after six seasons as the Gophers head coach.

The Gophers went 124-81 in overall play and 46-62 in the Big Ten conference under Smith in the past six seasons. With Smith at the helm, the Gophers made the NCAA tournament in three of Smith’s six seasons but was knocked out in the first round in 2009 and 2010.

Texas Tech, however, has denied that Smith and Texas Tech have reached an agreement.
