Texas Tech Names New Defensive Coordinator

texastech.com

After giving young coaches an opportunity to move up and become a defensive coordinator, and seeing that hasn’t worked out to well, coach Tommy Tuberville went and hired someone he knows and has been a defensive coordinator.

 

Texas Tech announced the hiring of Art Kaufman to lead the defensive side of things for the Red Raiders. He is the first coordinator since Greg McMackin to have at least three years experience at that position.

In 2010 James Willis was the DC and last year Chad Glasgow headed up the defense. Under both the Tech defense ranked 114th out of 120.

Kaufman comes to Tech from North Carolina. He has worked with Tuberville at Mississippi. He has been a DC at five other schools.

Kaufman helped the Tar Heel defense to a #48 national ranking in total defense.
