Texas Tech has hired
33 year-old former quarterback Kliff Kingsbury as its new coach, the school announced Wednesday. Kingsbury was Texas A&M's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He instructed Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel this season.
"It's just been a whirlwind, but I couldn't be happier, beyond ecstatic to be back. It feels like home," Kingsbury said after landing in Lubbock on Wednesday night. "This is where I wanted to be; it's where I've wanted to be."
