FOOTBALL

* Coach Jinks finds the 'right fit' at Texas Tech - San Antonio Express-News | From new RB coach Mike Jinks:

"There are all kinds of stereotypes," he said. "To me the toughest situation to get out of, knowing what I know from personal experience, is your environment. Coming from the inner city is hard. I know because that's where all my relatives come from, the inner city in Fort Worth.

"It's an unbelievable cycle. If inner-city kids see me and I look like them — or even if they're Hispanic or white — and that gives them hope that they can succeed, too, that gives me great joy."
