LUBBOCK (AP) – Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville has fired two assistants and moved a third to another position following the program’s first losing season in 19 years.
Offensive line coach Matt Moore and defensive backs coach Otis Mounds were fired Monday. Defensive line coach Sam McElroy will be reassigned to another job.
