Reports: Kliff Kingsbury Finalizes Contract with Texas Tech
ESPN’s Joe Schad reports Kingsbury’s deal is five years, worth $10.5 million with the potential of making $13.5 million with incentives (story).
No official word from Texas Tech University has been released on the finalization of the contract between the school and Kingsbury.
Kingsbury was hired in December of 2012 to replace the departing Tommy Tuberville who bolted for the University of Cincinnati.
Kingsbury has had a meteoric rise in the coaching ranks the past five years going from graduate assistant at Houston to offensive coordinator at Texas A&M this past season before coming to Texas Tech.
Kingsbury was a three-year starter for the Red Raider program from 2000 to 2002 and was the first quarterback in school history to pass for 5,000 yards.
Texas Tech opens the season August 31st in Dallas against the SMU Mustangs.
