If you’re a fan of the Auburn program, there’s a quote from Tommy Tuberville that ought to have you rolling on the floor. Speaking of his interest in being considered as the successor to Mike Leach at Texas Tech, here’s what TT had to say about the offense he’d run as head coach:
.. Tuberville said if he got the chance to coach at Tech, there would be no overhaul of the Mike Leach offense.
“It’d be crazy to change it,” he said. “That’s a trademark of Texas Tech now. It’s helped put them on the map. It’s helped in recruiting, I’ve noticed. Mike’s had a good chance of getting quarterbacks and receivers to come there – in the past, (Tech) wasn’t able to get them. We’ve run a lot of the spread over the years, and I’m very familiar with it.”
Some revisionist history, plus Jimmy Sexton – what more could you ask for if you’re the Texas Tech AD?
