Tubby Smith continues to add to his staff.

Texas Tech Basketball announced yesterday that Mark Adams will be Head of Basketball Operations.

Adams was previously the head coach at Howard College and is the father of junior guard Luke Adams.

"Mark brings a lot of experience," said Smith. "He is well respected throughout college basketball at every level.

He grew up and has lived in the Lubbock area all of his life, outside of the time he has spent coaching elsewhere. We are excited to have him onboard.”

This past season Adams led Howard College to a third 30-win season and winning the Western Junior College Championship.

Adams has led Howard College to either a first or second place finish in Region 5 in each of the past nine seasons.

Adams is a 1979 graduate of Texas Tech.
