  1. Let's see who you would like to see as the next assistant coach.
  2. Brooks "Bubba" Jennings, who has served in various capacities under Bob Knight, Pat Knight and Billy Gillispie, will begin his 12th year as a part of Texas Tech basketball staff under head coach Chris Walker. Jennings was one of the most decorated players in Texas Tech history, winning the coveted Francis Pomeroy Naismith Award as the nation's most outstanding collegiate basketball player under six-feet tall following his senior season. He started every game he ever played in at Texas Tech (117). An honorable mention All-America and Academic All-America selection in 1985, Jennings led Texas Tech to the Southwest Conference championship en route to begin named SWC Player of the Year, SWC Athlete of the Year, and Texas Tech Basketball MVP. Drafted by the Dallas Mavericks, Bubba went on to play professional basketball in Europe for the London Docklands Crystal Palace. Upon graduation, Jennings truly left his mark on the Texas Tech record book. He left Texas Tech as the school's second all-time leading scorer and currently ranks ninth on the list. He led the Red Raiders in scoring as a sophomore, junior and senior, but also twice led the squad in assists and steals. He currently still ranks in the Top 10 in nine statistical categories at Texas Tech. After graduating with his degree in physical education in 1985, Bubba joined Coach Myers' staff as a graduate assistant before moving to New Mexico to begin his own high school coaching career. During his nine years at Artesia High School in Artesia, New Mexico, his teams garnered two state titles in basketball as well as a state championship in golf. Jennings continued his coaching career in Lubbock, where he led Coronado High School to back-to-back district and bi-district championships. He was also recognized for his coaching efforts as city coach of the year and District 3-5A Coach of the Year. Originally from Clovis, New Mexico, Jennings not only played on a New Mexico State Championship team (AAAA), but he was also selected to the Class 4A All-State Team in 1979 and was named New Mexico Basketball Player of the Year in 1980. Selected as a high school All-America and Academic All-America by the NHSCAA in 1980, Jennings set New Mexico state records for the most points in a game (75) and the most points in a season. He was inducted into the Panhandle Sports Hall of Fame in 1980. Bubba's wife, Jackie, grew up in Arlington and is also a Texas Tech graduate. She recently established her own Lubbock business, "The Mud Room." Bubba and Jackie have three children, Cooper (23), Kadie (20), and Brooks III (15). read more: http://www.texastech.com/sports/m-baskbl/mtt/jennings_bubba00.html
  3. Sources indicate that Bubba is working at a bank in Lubbock and is enjoying it. He likes living in Lubbock. That said, the right coaching opportunity would get his attention. He maintains very close contact with Tony Benford.
  4. Now that Assistant Coach Bart Lundy is taking over the head job at Queens we wish him well. How about some thoughts about his replacement... Lundy was an X's and O's guy -- do we want to replace him with that or try for a recruiter like Shawn Forrest? I threw out Bubba Jennings.. left Tech recently and very close ties with Benford from his playing and coaching days at Tech. Probably had one of the best jump shots I ever watched growing up. Seems to be available although his ties to Lubbock are strong... Any other ideas?
  5. Bart Lundy’s tenure at North Texas was a short one. He stayed just a year before accepting the head coaching job at Queens in Charlotte. We talked about Lundy’s decision to head back to the school where he started his career as a head coach last night. The interesting aspect of how it all played out is that one of the big selling points for Benford when he took his first job as a head coach is that he could bring a pair of veteran head coaches with him to UNT in Lundy and Rob Evans, who is still on staff. So the question now becomes: Where does UNT go from here? It’s getting a little late in the summer for coaches to pick up and move. The name that a lot of people have brought up and makes a lot of sense is Bubba Jennings, a former Texas Tech assistant who played at Tech with Benford. Both Jennings and Benford are from New Mexico. Texas Tech just changed coaching staffs with Tubby Smith taking over the program. That put Jennings on the market.
