Kirby Hocutt “Believes” in Kingsbury
After a dominating win this past Friday against a spiraling Baylor football team, it seems that Kingsbury’s coaching seat remains occupied. After weeks of speculating whether the young head coach of the Red Raiders would be staying or packing his bags, AD Kirby Hocutt reiterated his confidence in Kingsbury being the best option for the program moving forward to the 2017-2018 season. The Red Raiders finished their season 5-7 and without a bowl game.
Texas Tech AD Kirby Hocutt said Kliff Kingsbury will return in 2017. "I believed in Kingsbury when we hired him. I believe in him today"— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) November 27, 2016
