“I looked at a lot of candidates for this job but when it came down to it, I turned to a guy that I knew could get the job done,” said Texas Tech Head Coach Tommy Tuberville. “Art is one of the best defensive coaches in the business and that is obvious when you take a look at the product he has put out on the field over the years. He has experience in the SEC, ACC and Conference USA and I know he will soon make his mark here in the Big 12. We are excited to have him on our staff and can’t wait to get to spring practice.”
