It appears that after only a few hours, a head coach candidate has emerged for the Red Raiders.

Chris Beard recently accepted the UNLV head coaching job after leading Arkansas-Little Rock to a 30-5 season and a first round upset of Purdue in the NCAA tournament. Beard of course spent a good amount of time at Texas Tech where he honed his coaching skills.

Another name being thrown out is Texas Tech alum, Darvin Ham.

Many Texas Tech students and alum have thrown Ham's name out there but nothing from any reporters has come to surface yet. Ham was an outstanding player for the Red Raiders and has been coaching in the NBA D-League and NBA, he is currently an assistant coach for the Atlanta Hawks.

Whoever the new coach is, VTM will keep you up to date with any breaking news.
