College Basketball: Texas Tech in talks with Tubby Smith
Tubby Smith is in discussions with Texas Tech to become the next basketball coach for the Red Raiders.
Two people with knowledge of the discussions told The Associated Press on Saturday night that Texas Tech has engaged Smith in negotiations to become the head coach. The people requested anonymity because the talks are ongoing.
Billy Gillispie resigned in September after one season at Tech. Interim coach Chris Walker went 11-20 this season and just 3-15 in Big 12 play.
