Glasgow Out

It has finally been confirmed after over a week of rumors that Chad Glasgow is out as Texas Tech's defensive coordinator.

One and done.

That is the phrase that is usually associated with players leaving college for the pros, but now it can be associated with now former Texas Tech defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow's short-lived tenure here at Tech.

On Thursday it was finally confirmed after more than a week of rumors that Glasgow will not return to the Red Raider Football staff next fall.

On Wednesday evening it is reported that Glasgow and the administration came to a mutual agreement on him not returning to the sidelines next season.

The first-year defensive coordinator could not find the right solution to all the problems the defensive unit saw this year, in particular stopping the run.

Opponents this past season were averaging 258.8 yards per game on the run and gained 159 first downs that way.

The run was not the only problem as opponents were also averaging 226.8 passing yards per game, and overall were averaging 485.6 yards per game in total offense.

Before Tech Glasgow had served 10 seasons at TCU under the influence and guidance of defensive guru and genius Gary Patterson, but could not find a way to transfer that knowledge and experience into his first defensive coordinator job.

With the hiring of a new defensive coordinator it will mark the fourth in four seasons, really causing some problems with getting consistency going.

The search for a replacement will begin immediately for Glasgow's replacement and it has been rumored that Tech will be changing from the 4-2-5 defense that Glasgow ran to a more conventional 4-3 defense.
