This is big. I thought she was doing a decent job. I guess she had to get out of Lubbock, where fine dining is Applebee's and Velveeta is in the gourmet section, and tallest mountain is the manure pile at the feed lot upwind. LOL
You sound like happiness is Lubbock in her rear view mirror. One can only wish Amber felt the same way.
I don't know the exact numbers but her conference record was terrible and like the article said in 7 years she had 2 NCAA appearances and was one and done in both. The TT board has been pretty down on her for a few years.
If they hire a name I doubt they move. If they don't hire a good coach.... ?
Tech has a lot of money. Lets hope they screw it up.
Come on home Amber!
I still have a problem with TT fans since the NCAA Cisti Greenwalt game. I respect what they do, but I do not really want to see them prosper. Their one moment in the sun was tainted by the way they got Swoopes. Swoopes was headed to Texas when rumors started about UT being a haven for lesbians. Swoopes then decided upon TT. Ironically, Swoopes later came out of the closet. Back in those days one really good player could get you to the promised land. These days, the pool of top shelf players is much larger and one player cannot carry the load any more.
There's no doubt in my mind that Christy was fired. Nobody willingly gives up a 750 K position in favor of a team that hasn't done anything since their last NCAA appearance in 1999. For those into conspiracy theories, try this on. Why did Beth Burns mysteriously resign? Could it be that she had a prior greener pastures arrangement with Texas Tech? Stay turned.
We wasn't fired but you better believe she was feeling the heat. Another less that successful year and no extension isn't good. She's a smart business woman. She got out before it got bad. She's also getting the same amount at her new job with another 3/4 years on her coaching life. That's a good deal!
Fans seem to want Brandon Schneider, Noel Johnson or Candi(White) whitaker. Johnson and White played at Tech, Schneider a young coach who seems to have turned around SF Austin. Be interesting if it is Adams how the fans react.
