Texas Tech's hellish end to the season has led to an equally hellish end for head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who was officially fired Sunday morning following a 35-24 loss to 6-6 Baylor on Saturday.

Texas Tech finished the season losing its last five games to finish with a 5-7 record and third straight losing season.


Kingsbury first became the head coach in 2013 at age 34 and went 8-5 in what would be his best season. His teams are known for having fantastic offenses, as he coached Patrick Mahomes into being the dynamo that he is today, but they often lack the defensive firepower to go along with it. That's why analysts seem to believe that he could be a solid NFL offensive coordinator should he decide to leave the college ranks entirely.

Texas Tech lost to four unranked teams this season, with two of those losses coming at home. ​Kliff Kingsbury may be somewhat of an offensive genius, but he may not be made for head coaching...at least, not yet.
