New LB Coach Candidate: Ruffin McNeill?

Submitted by CCBlue on January 14th, 2010 at 12:50 PM

It appears that the much beloved Ruffin McNeill, the former DC and Interim Head Coach for Texas Tech, has been fired by the new Tuberville regime. He was apparently also their LBs Coach.

Would love to get him in the mix for LB Coach consideration as possible. He appeared to be beloved by the players who had supported him to replace Leach after the Alamo Bowl win. He seems like a players coach would also likely give us more recruiting chops/connections in TX and the South.

That I want him to be our coach just because of his name. There are not too many names better suited for a LB coach than RUFFIN!

RUFF'EM For RUFFIN!

Yes, because when I think Texas Tech, I think top self defense. Seriousily, did you see their "defense" against a Sparty Team missing multiple offensive starters?
