Chris Walker Joins Red Raiders Men's Basketball Coaching Staff - TEXAS TECH OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE
Finally.  It seemed like this announcement would never happen, but it finally happened yesterday as Chris Walker was officially announced as an assistant coach to Billy Gillispie.  Here's BCG on Walker:

"From the moment I took the job, he was one of my top targets because he is a relationship builder," noted Gillispie. "He has tremendous relationships not only in Texas but across the country. He develops great relationships within the program and the community and that pays off in so many ways. I think this was a great move for Chris and it's definitely a great move for Texas Tech."

And Walker:

"Although I am leaving my alma mater and great friend Coach Wright, I am thrilled and excited to join Billy Gillispie and the Texas Tech Basketball family," said Walker. "I am humbled by this opportunity and being back in Texas makes it even more special."

Welcome to Coach Walker and you can find his Twitter handle @RedRaiderHoops.
