Not surprised. Tubby never wanted to stay at Texas Tech. I think he took that job because he saw an easy way to lay low and win some games with the offensive players Leach recruited. He was hoping to get back into the SEC but when Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky never called, he was out of luck and just took the next best option.
I still think he's a good coach, contrary to what Texas Tech fans say about him. His style is just not meant for the Big XII. Texas Tech is quickly becoming a dead-end job...they were lucky to have Leach build a good program but without him, it's not like they are one of the top programs in the state or the area. Obviously behind Texas, Oklahoma but now they've been passed by OK State, Baylor and TCU, along with Texas A&M.
I don't see why Kingsbury would go there...he will be one of the most popular coaching candidates out there, he could do MUCH better. Tech is in for a big-time rebuilding job
