Texas Tech Red Raiders Football 2022: ‘Part of Something

It’s been a long time since an upcoming Texas Tech Red Raiders football season had so much excitement and optimism surrounding it.

After the October firing of Matt Wells and the temporary promotion of offensive coordinator Sonnie Cumbie last season, Tech finished with a respectable 7-6 overall record and a 34-7 Liberty Bowl victory over the SEC’s Mississippi State Bulldogs.

But Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt also saw the 3-6 Big 12 mark and decided more permanent changes needed to be made. 

Enter new head coach Joey McGuire, a former assistant at Baylor who has a long and deep history embedded in Texas high school football.
