Spencer On His Way Out?

Dan Spencer's team did not turn in the record anyone expected, now it looks like it might cost him his job.

After another dismal season, where the Red Raiders finished 29-26 overall and 7-17 in Big 12 Conference play, it seems that Dan Spencer's time at Texas Tech is coming to a close.

A 10:30 a.m.  press conference has been called by Texas Tech and it comes just two days after the Red Raiders ended their season with missing the Big 12 Tournament.

In his four seasons at the helm of the Red Raider program, Spencer posted a record of 115-112, but unlike his overall record, which was a winning record, in Big 12 play he led the Red Raiders to a 44-61 mark.

Pitching was supposed to be the key to success here at Texas Tech considering Spencer came in with years of success as a pitching coach helping the Oregon State Beavers to three-straight trips to the College World Series and back-to-back National Championships in 2006 and 2007.

2012 was supposed to be the season the Red Raiders found success with all the talent that was returning including Barrett Barnes, Reid Redman and Jamodrick McGruder, just to name a few.

There were also some freshman standouts including Tim Proudfoot and Bryant Burleson, but when everything came together it just didn't turn into victories.

Spencer took over the program in 2008, following legendary head coach Larry Hays, and just could never find the same success as he did.

More coming on this on Monday, so be sure to check back right here on RaiderPower.com.
