Major College Football Coach Has Reportedly Been Fired

David Hookstead | Reporter

Texas Tech has reportedly fired their football coach Kliff Kingsbury.

According to KENS5’s Joe Reinagel, Kingsbury was fired following the Red Raiders loss to Baylor Saturday. He will finish his career with the program 35-40. His buyout is reportedly just north of $4 million.

It felt like this had been coming for a long time. Kingsbury was the guy behind Patrick Mahomes and Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M. Yet, it never really clicked for him at Texas Tech.

The Red Raiders simply were never able to compete at the level they should have been at during his tenure as their head coach.

Plus, we all know Texas as a state views football as a religion, and Tech never was on the same level nationally as A&M or Texas as of late. (RELATED: The Latest AP College Football Poll Has Arrived. Does Number Two Surprise You?)

The good news for Kingsbury is that he’s not going to be unemployed for long. He’s a young coach with a ton of experience. There’s no doubt somebody will scoop him up sooner than later.
