  1. LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech Head Football Coach Kliff Kingsbury has announced the promotion of Emmett Jones as an offensive assistant coach. Jones has served as Tech's Director of Player Development since February 2015. Jones' specific position duties will be announced at a later time. "Coach Jones is an extremely hard working individual and already an integral part of our staff," Kingsbury said. "He will be a great addition to our offensive unit and the relationships he’s built around the state will be invaluable moving forward." Jones arrived at Texas Tech following three seasons as the head coach at South Oak Cliff, one of the top high school programs in the state of Texas. South Oak Cliff was a combined 30-8 under Jones as the Golden Bears advanced deep in the Class 5A playoffs in all three seasons, including a trip to the regional championship during his final year in 2014. In addition, South Oak Cliff was also a hotbed for talent during Jones’ tenure as multiple players signed with Division-I programs, including current Red Raider freshman Jamile Johnson. Jones had five players from his 2014 squad sign with Division-I programs. Jones spent his entire high school coaching career in the Dallas area as he was the offensive coordinator and receivers coach at Dallas Skyline for seven seasons. He also coached wide receivers at his alma mater, Seagoville High School, from 2001-04 and then Dallas Lincoln High School for one season. Jones graduated from North Texas in 1999. He and his wife Marlo are parents to two kids, Emily and Emmett. read more: http://www.texastech.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/010416aaa.html

  3. 12. North TexasWhy it's desirable: It's a work study program for a bigger head coaching job. That's not a magnet for an established head coach, but North Texas hasn't hired one of those since Hayden Fry in 1973. Its eight head coaches since Fry have either come from assistant coaching roles (six times) or from a high school (twice). For an assistant looking to learn how the big chair feels, it's a starting point. Why it's not: There is no winning history to speak of, and the competition for in-state talent is immense. There are 12 schools in Texas in the FBS alone, including three others in Conference-USA. Perfect fit: Texas Tech offensive coordinator Eric Morris. read more: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000567353/article/ranking-the-13-college-headcoaching-vacancies Morris Bio
  4. Texas Tech has added South Oak Cliff football coach Emmett Jones to its staff. Jones made his decision official on Friday afternoon. Jones (a 1993 Seagoville graduate) is considered a rising star in the Dallas ISD coaching ranks. He's led South Oak Cliff to state playoff prominence the last three seasons after a stint at Skyline as Reggie Samples offensive coordinator. Jones is expected to join Tech's staff as early as next week. Tech is following a huge trend among high-ranking college to dip into the Texas high school football coaching ranks. SMU named former Lake Travis, Stephenville and Bay City coach Chad Morris as its head coach and Morris in turn hired multiple high school coaches including Claude Mathis from DeSoto and Mark Smith from Hurst L.D. Bell. Morris had been offensive coordinator at Clemson. Read more: http://www.wfaa.com/story/sports/2015/01/30/south-oak-cliff-emmett-jones-expected-to-make-texas-tech-move/22606191/
  5. This is a great article outlining the issues facing the Texas legislature in terms of moving beyond just two tier one flagship universities in Texas (UT and Texas A&M). It's a fairly long article but really worth reading as it provides a lot of insight on the obstacles facing universities like UNT who are striving for tier one status. Here are a couple of snippets: "...But a patchwork funding system cobbled together in recent years by lawmakers hoping to boost the emerging research universities doesn’t come close to providing the steady infusion of hundreds of millions of dollars it would take to lift even a couple of them into the big leagues within the next 10 or 20 years, higher education leaders say. One telling example: Lawmakers passed a measure encouraging schools to raise private donations that would be eligible for matching state grants, but then shorted them by $122.6 million, an American-Statesman analysis shows." "Bottom line: The state’s efforts are likely to lift all eight educational boats somewhat, but none enough to qualify as true flagships." "The Lone Star State currently has no schools in the magazine’s top 10. Its highest-ranked, UT, is No. 17, followed by A&M at 25, UT-Dallas at 76 and Texas Tech at 84." “Much of Texas politics is rhetorical, with little reference to the real world and the kinds of investments it takes to move an educational system,” Jillson said. “The goal of moving Texas’ universities to a top 10 status is grand, but the investment is very modest.” Read more: Politics, lack of funding hamper Texas universities’ climb to top tier - MRT.com: Education
  6. I have long beat the drum for an indoor practice facility on S Bonnie Brae. Seeing this article made me wonder which Texas schools have and don't have indoor facility? I couldn't find a list, but schools that I know have a dedicated indoor facility are Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, TCU, and Houston. And while they're not in Texas or even our conference, the Ragin Cajuns have a pretty nice indoor facility over in Lafayette, LA. Does UTSA use the Alamodome to practice indoors? The article: http://redraiders.com/filed-online/2013-11-25/kingsbury-downplays-need-indoor-facility-ad-says-its-priority#.UpYqjc_0EtN Some snippets: - Kliff Kingsbury’s not breathing down Kirby Hocutt’s neck to build his team an indoor practice facility. The Texas Tech football coach makes it sound as if he cares little whether one ever gets constructed. - Tech has recently rekindled discussions with San Antonio architectural firm Marmon Mok to talk over size, scope and possible locations for such a facility. - Snow had to be cleared from the Jones AT&T Stadium turf before the Red Raiders practiced on Sunday. “We had a tractor out there moving it off, which took a little while yesterday, but we got it done,” Kingsbury said. “It’s been fine. It is what it is. We’ve practiced outside for a long time up here.” Kingsbury’s shrugging off a perceived need for an indoor facility is nothing new at Tech. His old coach, Mike Leach, snorted in disgust at the idea of weather influencing where his team practiced. Leach seemed to take it as a badge of toughness to be outside on the worst weather days. The last three years, it was much the opposite. Tommy Tuberville, who was sensitive to weather effects on his team’s preparation, tried to push an indoor workout facility up the priority list. He favored building an indoor workout facility over one of the team’s two existing practice fields, adjoining the Red Raiders’ football building and weight room.
  7. 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

  9. Texas Tech evacuated its athletics administration offices inside Jones AT&T Stadium and the nearby football training facility Tuesday afternoon in fear one of two tall lighting fixtures inside the stadium could come down. University and city emergency personnel have secured the area and they are trying to get the fixture back under control. Jones AT&T Stadium has two standalone lighting fixtures. They are located in the southeast and northeast corners to complement lighting on top of the press box on the west side. The problem area is the southeast corner.
