"I am very excited to announce Tim Tadlock as Texas Tech's new baseball coach," Hocutt said. "Tim has prepared himself for this tremendous opportunity and honor to lead our baseball program. As one of the nation's most respected recruiters and coaches he has demonstrated the ability to attract, teach and win at the highest level. There are great days ahead for Texas Tech baseball."

And a word from Tadlock:
