LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Tommy Tuberville says he is certain he can
take Texas Tech to new heights.
"There's no doubt in my mind we can take it to the next
level," he said Sunday after being introduced as the coach of the
Red Raiders.
He said he wants to improve Texas Tech's defense and add a "few
new wrinkles," to its pass-happy offense.
Tuberville replaces Mike Leach, who was fired last month amid
allegations he mistreated a player who suffered a concussion.
Tuberville accepted the job Saturday and was expected to sign a
contract later this week, officials said.
He stepped down at Auburn in December 2008, ending a 10-year
tenure that included a perfect season and a string of teams that
contended for Southeastern Conference championships.
