College Football News: Texas Tech has new head coach; USC appears to need one
Texas Tech reportedly announced today that they have their successor to Mike Leach. Former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville reportedly signed a five-year deal worth about $2 million a year. Color me surprised that they did not appoint interim coach Ruffin McNeill to the permanent post after he handled the Leach firing with poise and led his team to a huge Alamo Bowl victory.
In more baffling college coaching news, the Seahawks have reportedly worked out a deal to bring in USC coach Pete Carroll. Why Carroll would leave USC (where he’s been highly successful and worshipped by fans and media alike) for the NFL (where he was anything but successful or beloved) is beyond me. Especially for an entirely unenticing job like the Seahawks.
Look at their roster and tell me you’d take that job. I dare you.
At any rate, looks like the Trojans will be on the look out for their new head coach. Possible upgrade for Mike Leach? Hmmmm…
