LUBBOCK – The team came out in shorts and helmet and ran sort of a "walk through" workout, reviewing their offensive and defensive playbooks.
"Today was just pretty much a day of Just trying to get the guys back up", Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tubberville said.
In addition, the team also ran some situational plays in which both quarterbacks (Seth Doege and Scotty Young) continued to split what appeared like an equal amount of reps as they battle it out for the starting job, along with Jacob Karam.
"It's looking a lot better each day on both sides of the ball, the guys are starting to get into a groove," Tubberville added.
But the hot topic of the day was the hiring of new Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt. Texas Tech athletics confirmed earlier Friday that Hocutt, who was the AD at Miami (Fl), would be the one who takes the reins from current athletic director Gerald Myers, who will be retiring at the end of May.
"I know Kirby, he's a good young guy with a lot of enthusiasm," Tuberville said. "He'll be good for us. It's a good choice, he's been a couple places that have had success in all sports, and me being from Florida, I know Miami isn't an easy place to be the athletic director. Coach Myers has done a great job as athletic director and he's been here awhile, but Kirby will bring some new ideas and we look forward to working with him."
The Red Raiders will scrimmage Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. and hope to get in a good 130 – 140 plays to end this week's practice.
"We invite everybody out to support out team, and hope to have a good turnout", Tubberville said.
The Red Raiders will have two more team scrimmages before their annual spring game on March 26.
