It’s finally over, the man, the myth, the legend Chris Beard and Texas Tech have come to a new contract agreement. The details haven’t quite been released yet, but it has been confirmed that the deal is in place and it is for 6 more seasons.

Beard has led the Red Raiders to two straight long runs in the NCAA Tournament with this year’s run lasting into the National Championship game. This contract is something that has had Red Raider fans everywhere worried and I’m sure it’s a big relief to fans everywhere that this deal is now done.

We sure are glad that Texas Tech has extended it’s greatest asset. Without Beard, this program would be nowhere near the heights it has been in the past two years. Here’s to the next six years, and hopefully many more than that!
