    The Arizona Cardinals are set to hire Kliff Kingsbury as their new head coach, according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports. In December, Kingsbury was named offensive coordinator at the University of Southern California after being fired from his head-coaching role at Texas Tech. Following the conclusion of the NFL regular season, the Cardinals and New York Jets had expressed interest in hiring Kingsbury for their head-coaching vacancies. However, the Trojans reportedly did not initially grant Kingsbury permission to interview with either club. He went on to eventually meet with both teams.

    The Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock was on lockdown for more than an hour Monday night after a police officer was shot and killed at campus police headquarters, authorities said. A call for a student "welfare check" led campus officers to a room where they found drugs and drug paraphernalia, prompting the officers to take the student to the station, a spokesman for the school said in a statement. University Police Chief Kyle Bonath said late Monday that the suspect had been taken into custody and was being processed for jail on the drug evidence when "he produced a...

    Last Saturday, Marcus Smart, a 19-year-old Oklahoma State player, shoved a fan (as in perfect attendance fanatic) named Jeff Orr, a 52-year-old who apparently chooses to devote his time and money to closely following Texas Tech basketball, which is played by kids. There are tons of Jeff Orrs. I don’t get it, and the more I see it — and it’s everywhere — the less I get it. There are thousands of otherwise well-adjusted adults who just can’t get close enough to college basketball teams. They begin to pant; their hearts go pitter-patter.

    After a 20-13 victory over Baylor on Nov. 28, 2009, Leach is seen criticizing his players and ripping into them for thinking a close loss to Texas was acceptable. "There's a couple of you guys that your current living situation is going to change," Leach says. "We've got several of you, particularly on offense, all you do is pull mediocrity out of one another. Well, you're going to live somewhere else. Last time I checked, we're paying the [expletive] bills." After a 42-21 victory over Kansas on Oct. 31, 2009, Leach questions a group of players and calls them "God...

Tuberville stepped down at Auburn in December 2008, ending a 10-year tenure that included a perfect season and a string of teams that contended for Southeastern Conference championships.
