"J-Bob has worked extremely hard to earn this opportunity," Tadlock said. "We are very excited to add him to our coaching staff."
During his time at Howard, Thomas helped turn the Hawks into the winningest Division I junior college program in the nation (247 wins - averaged 49 wins a season) while winning the NJCAA D-I World Series in 2009 with an astonishing 63-1 overall record, which included a college baseball record 57-game win streak.
"I couldn't be more excited to join Coach Tadlock's staff and to be a part of the Texas Tech family," Thomas said. "I'm grateful for this opportunity and can't wait to get started."
I like it just about any time that Texas Tech hires a J-Bob.
