Smith to coach Texas Tech

Tubby Smith is coming to Texas Tech to try to turn around another wayward program.

Smith agreed to terms Monday with Texas Tech to be its next coach, a person with knowledge of the deal told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.

He will take over for interim coach Chris Walker, who went 11-20 this season and 3-15 in Big 12 play. The program is still reeling from Billy Gillispie’s volatile one-year tenure, which ended when he resigned in September.

Smith becomes the fourth person to lead Texas Tech in as many seasons.
