One of the nation's brightest young assistant coaches, former Texas Tech quarterback Kliff Kingsbury is in his first season as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Texas A&M.

Kingsbury comes from the University of Houston where he played a key role in the Cougars' record-setting 13-victory season in 2011. The Cougars finished 2011 with a 13-1 record and posted the program's highest final BCS finish in school history.

Kingsbury served as co-offensive coordinator and QB coach for the Cougars, and was named Offensive Coordinator of the Year by FootballScoop.com. The Cougars led the nation in total offense, passing offense and scoring in 2011, while record-setting quarterback Case Keenum placed seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting and won the Sammy Baugh Award.

With Kingsbury calling the offensive plays, the Cougars averaged 599.1 total yards per game, including 450.1 through the air, while scoring over 49 points per game. The Cougars scored over 70 points in two games in 2001, and finished the year with a 30-14 win over Penn State in the Ticket City Bowl.

Kingsbury was instrumental in the continued development of Keenum, who finished his illustrious career as the most prolific passer in NCAA FBS history. In his one season with Kingsbury as his QB coach, Keenum completed 428-of-604 passes for 5,631 yards and 48 touchdowns, all NCAA FBS bests.

In his first season as quarterbacks coach in 2010, Kingsbury prepped a true freshman signal caller David Piland to an average of 330.1 yards passing per game, which ranked No. 3 nationally. He was named to the Sporting News Freshman All-American team.

After an eight-year professional football career, Kingsbury entered the coaching ranks in the spring of 2008 when he joined Sumlin's staff as an offensive quality control assistant. A sixth-round draft pick in 2003 by the New England Patriots, Kingsbury played for five NFL teams and also saw action in the Canadian Football League and the All-American Football League.

Kingsbury was drafted by Bill Belichick and the Patriots after a record-setting career at Texas Tech. Kingsbury received multiple honors including Associated Press Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year as a quarterback for the Red Raiders. In addition, he set 39 school records, 16 Big 12 marks and 17 NCAA records during his career. As a senior he was awarded the Sammy Baugh Trophy, annually presented to the nation's best college quarterback.

The first in a long line of record-setting Texas Tech quarterbacks under then-head coach Mike Leach, Kingsbury recorded more than 12,000 passing yards and total offense including over 1,000 pass completions making him only the third player in NCAA history to accomplish all three. Kingsbury also excelled in the classroom as he was one of 14 collegiate football players to receive a post-graduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame as he also garnered Academic Player of the Year honors in 2002.

A native of New Braunfels, Texas, Kingsbury graduated from Texas Tech in 2001 with a bachelor's degree in management.

To replace the departed Tommy Tuberville, Texas Tech has hired 33-year-old Kliff Kingsbury as its head coach.

As offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Texas A&M, Kingsbury helped turned Johnny Manzeil into the Heisman Trophy winner. Before that, Kingsbury was the quarterback for Mike Leach when the “Air Raid” offense came to Lubbock.

Emily Jones of Fox Sports Southwest caught up with Leach to get his reaction to Kingsbury's hire.

She tweeted: “Mike Leach on Kliff Kingsburgy's hiring as Texas Tech's head football coach: “Stud!!!” #directquote

Kliff Kingsbury hired as Texas Tech Red Raiders coach - ESPN EDITIONS: USA ESPAÑOL More Asia Australia Brazil United Kingdom CITIES: BOSTON CHICAGO DALLAS LOS ANGELES NEW YORK ESPN College Football Shop Texas Tech hires Kliff Kingsbury Updated: December 12, 2012, 11:00 PM ET By Joe Schad | ESPN.com Recommend0 Tweet0 Comments0Email Print

Texas Tech has hired former quarterback Kliff Kingsbury as its new coach, the school announced Wednesday.

Ubben: Tech Takes Right Risk

Kliff Kingsbury threw for 12,429 yards and 95 touchdowns at Texas Tech. A decade later, he's become the Red Raiders' new coach at age 33 with just five years as a collegiate assistant under his belt, writes David Ubben. Blog

Kingsbury, 33, was offered the Tech job on Wednesday afternoon, and athletic director Kirby Hocutt announced the news of him accepting it with a video posted on Twitter not long after.

"Wreck 'em Tech," Kingsbury said in the video, giving the school's "Guns Up" sign when the camera panned to him.

Kingsbury was Texas A&M's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He instructed Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel this season.

Hocutt said Kingsbury agreed to a four-year deal, the terms of which have not been settled. Kingsbury will be formally introduced at a news conference on Friday.

"It's just been a whirlwind, but I couldn't be happier, beyond ecstatic to be back. It feels like home," Kingsbury said after landing in Lubbock on Wednesday night. "This is where I wanted to be; it's where I've wanted to be."

Hocutt called Kingsbury the "right fit" for Texas Tech.

"He's prepared his whole life for this," said Hocutt, who was the same age as Kingsbury when he got his first athletic director job at Ohio University. "He's ready and I had no hesitation."

Kingsbury was co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Houston and record-breaking QB Case Keenum in 2010-11.

Kingsbury threw 95 touchdowns for Texas Tech between 1998-2002.

Not long after Kingsbury was hired former Texas Tech receiver Danny Amendola, now with the St. Louis Rams, tweeted: "We jus got our swagger back. Wreck em TECH. Lets ride."

Kingsbury has been mentored by successful coaches such as Dana Holgorsen and Kevin Sumlin, who stressed Kingbury's organization and intelligence despite his inexperience.

[+] EnlargeThomas Campbell/USA TODAY SportsKliff Kingsbury, a star quarterback at Texas Tech a decade ago, is returning to coach the Red Raiders.

The Texas Tech job came open when Tommy Tuberville left in stunning fashion Saturday, ending his three-year tenure in Lubbock to become Cincinnati's coach.

Red Raiders fans never warmed to Tuberville. Texas Tech still emphasized the passing game and the spread offense, but many Tech fans had a hard time getting past the firing of the popular Mike Leach.

There's no doubt about what kind of offense the Red Raiders now will run. Kingsbury has been part of some of the most prolific offenses in the country the past few years. Texas A&M is third in the nation in total offense at 552 yards per game heading into the AT&T Cotton Bowl against Oklahoma.

"Bittersweet..happy for him though couldn't of happened to a better guy and a great coach," Manziel wrote on Twitter. "To all the people worried about Coach K leaving..Coach Sumlin will always bring in the best and do anything to make sure we're successful ... Have faith in Coach Sumlin...It's got us this far, why stop now?"

If it was any other school, Kingsbury said, he would have stayed at A&M.

"He understands," Kingsbury said of Manziel. "He knows how I feel about him. He's as good a player as I've ever seen and probably the fiercest competitor I've ever been around, so it was definitely hard with that. But this is where I belong."

Kingsbury will work with sophomore quarterback Michael Brewer, this season's backup to Seth Doege. Brewer played high school football under Chad Morris, who Hocutt interviewed for the Red Raiders coaching job Tuesday in South Carolina. Hocutt later flew to Nashville, Tenn., to meet with Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray.

Kingsbury knows Brewer's talent, calling him a "winner" and a "heck of a player."

"I just got through coaching one of those up that was pretty decent, so hopefully we can get him going," he said of Brewer.

The past two seasons have seen the Red Raiders slide down the stretch. This year they lost four of their last five games, and in 2011, they dropped five straight to close the season for the program's first losing season since 1992. Under Tuberville, Texas Tech did not have a winning Big 12 season.

The Red Raiders play Minnesota in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 28 in Houston. Chris Thomsen, who led the offensive line under Tuberville, will coach that game.

Kingsbury was selected by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2003 NFL draft and appeared in one game for the New York Jets in 2005.

He is a Texas native from New Braunfels, not far from Austin.

I'll get this out of the way right now: I have absolutely nothing against Kliff Kingsbury. In fact, I'm rooting for him to succeed at Texas Tech. 

But I don't think Kingsbury is a great head coach hire at a BCS school, much less a school in a football-crazed state like Texas. 

Kingsbury's coaching resume is extremely light, with only five years experience in the coaching capacity. Granted, Kingsbury has had great success at both Houston and Texas A&M, but is it possible that his great success was largely due to the luxury of having great quarterbacks to work with?

While Kingsbury was Houston's co-offensive coordinator (and eventually, its playcaller), quarterback Case Keenum was lighting up the scoreboards. Because of the incredible offensive numbers put up by the Houston Cougars, Kingsbury was named the 2011 Offensive Coordinator of the Year by FootballScoop.com. 

Kingsbury then followed then-Houston coach Kevin Sumlin to Texas A&M and mentored quarterback Johnny Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner. Kingsbury was named the 2012 Offensive Coordinator of the Year for a second consecutive year.

Now, Kliff Kingsbury is the head coach of Texas Tech at the ripe old age of 33. True, Kingsbury has ties to the school; he played quarterback at Texas Tech from 1998 to 2002 under then-head coach Mike Leach.

But Kingsbury has no experience as a head coach, and all of his coaching experience, while impressive, is connected to outstanding quarterbacks at his disposal. The flip side to that argument is that due to Kingsbury's outstanding coaching skills, both Keenum and Manziel succeeded.

Did Kingsbury make the quarterbacks succeed, or is it vice versa? Maybe a little of both, but his lack of head coaching experience does beg the question: How have other coaches without extensive head coaching experience fared in BCS conferences as newly-hired head coaches?

Colorado's Jon Embree was out after two years. Charlie Weis had an impressive NFL coaching pedigree, but only had one year of head coaching at New Jersey's Franklin High School—he lasted five years at Notre Dame. 

Perhaps the biggest example of how lack of head coaching experience can translate to a questionable hire is Gene Chizik. After two years as Iowa State's head coach, Chizik was hired as Auburn's head coach for the 2009 season. 

How will Kingsbury do at Texas Tech after two years? He'll have a winning record He'll have a losing record He'll have a so-so record Submit Vote vote to see results How will Kingsbury do at Texas Tech after two years? He'll have a winning record 71.7% He'll have a losing record 7.1% He'll have a so-so record 21.2% Total votes: 1,825

Chizik's Tigers won the 2010 BCS Championship, but many pundits point to quarterback Cam Newton as the reason why Auburn went 14-0 that year. Chizik was dismissed this year after posting an 8-5 and 3-9 record following that 2010 BCS Championship season. Chizik finished with a 33-19 record at Auburn, but without Cam Newton and that 14-0 magical season, he went 19-19. 

Clearly, the quarterback made the coach succeed at Auburn.  

Kingsbury could be the next Urban Meyer. He could also be the next Gene Chizik. 

Debuting as a head coach in a BCS conference has a lot more pressure involved in it than doing it in a mid-major league such as the Sun Belt or MAC. Defense wins championships, as offensive guru and West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen found out this year in the Big 12. So did Texas head coach Mack Brown and Baylor head coach Art Briles.

I have no doubt Tech's offense will be prolific under quarterback Michael Brewer in 2013. But Kingsbury is responsible for the entire team's units, not just the offense, so he's not going to be getting a lot of hall passes in the Big 12. 

Instead of coaching a team in a stepping stone conference for future great coaches, Kingsbury is coaching a team still smarting over the Mike Leach dismissal and the Tommy Tuberville departure to Cincinnati. 

No pressure, no pressure at all, right?

Could Kliff Kingsbury be a great hire? Absolutely.

But "could" demands a question mark.

And right now, so does Texas Tech's hiring of Kliff Kingsbury.

Kliff Kingsbury Leaves A&M For Texas Tech, Breaks SEC Hearts : Outkick The Coverage Kliff Kingsbury Leaves A&M For Texas Tech, Breaks SEC Hearts

Published on: December 13, 2012 | Written by: Clay Travis

Kliff Kingsbury is leaving Texas A&M and the SEC to become a head coach in the Big 12.

All over the South women are weeping quietly into their pillows. (So are their boyfriends and husbands). The sunglass wearing, long sleeve rocking, boat-shoe wearing frat guy with the perpetual five o'clock shadow and the high-scoring offense, both on and off the field, will no longer be tantalizing sorority girls in the SEC. 

Kliff Kingsbury has left the Station. 

On Tuesday OKTC featured a shirtless photo of Kingsbury. It was a test of sorts, how many of you, erstwhile heterosexual men, would click the photo from the privacy of your computers or mobile devices? The answer was tons. The site nearly hit a new mobile record for immediate clicks. Yes, some of those readers were women, eager to find a new sex obsession since finishing "50 Shades of Grey," but the majority were men, unable to resist the siren song of your own fiscal Kliff.

Remember, it's not gay if it's Kliff Kingsbury.

(By the way, ladies, you know what the fiscal Kliff is? When Kingsbury pushes you out of bed in the morning).

That's why we're doing something extraordinary here at OTKC, we are inducting Kliff Kingsbury into the Outkick the Coverage Hall of Fame.

I know, I know, Kingsbury is single.

And Kingsbury is also male.

But is there any doubt that whatever woman ends up with Kingsbury has outkicked her coverage?

No, indeed.

So congratulations to Kliff Kingsbury, the first ever OKTC single male inductee into the outkick the coverage hall of fame.

As a way to say goodbye to Kliff's tenure at Texas A&M, OKTC was able to obtain the new contract that Kingsbury signed with Texas Tech. It contained several provisions that I thought would be of interest to you.

Without further ado, here are the 16 most important provisions in Kliff Kingsbury's new contract:

1. Texas Tech's, "Get your guns up," slogan has now been modified to add an explanatory parenthetical.

"Get your guns up, (but don't shoot Kingsbury for sleeping with your wife)."

2. There will now be a jacuzzi in the film room.

Kingsbury will hold all team meetings from the jacuzzi while wearing sunglasses.

3. Kingsbury receives final say on the Kappa Kappa Gamma entering pledge class each year.

As part of "hazing," they work as secretaries at the Red Raider football complex on pantsless Fridays.

4. A disco ball has been added to the private recruiting airplane.

During all flights, Snoop Dogg's "Doggystyle," will play on constant repeat.

Unless a southern sorority girl is on the plane. At which point, "Sweet Caroline," will play on constant loop. (So "Sweet Caroline" will pretty much always be playing on the airplane).

5. 365 long sleeve t-shirts in his closet alternating between red and white.

You can already get yours here.

6. May only be photographed after five o'clock.

So his facial hair always looks perfect.

If a photographer violates this rule, he has to go to dinner with Tommy Tuberville.

7. Boat shoe endorsement deal.

8. Boat

The boat's registered name will be, "Take your top off."

9. A new pair of sunglasses sitting on his desk each morning.

Alongside said sunglasses?

Two advil.

10. After every touchdown, Kingsbury slaps all cheerleaders, male and female, on the ass.

11. The annual Texas Tech "Calf Fry," heretofore will be known as the "Kliff Fry."

The Depot District is also being renamed the Fiscal Kliff. (By the way, "the Fiscal Kliff," would be the greatest bar name in Lubbock history. I'm just giving this one away to y'all.)

12. Promising "boy band ass," to a five-star recruit is not an NCAA violation.

Even if, as will be the case with Kingsbury, he has promised to be your wingman and said the following, "Bro, I could get Jared from Subway a fivesome tonight."

13. "The Hangover: Part Four" will be filmed in Lubbock.

And all of the stars of the previous Hangover movies will be replaced by Kingsbury.

14. Coach's gatorade bottle will always be stocked with sweet-tea vodka.

If coach's gatorade bottle is not stocked with sweet-tea vodka he will choke you to death with his croakies while humming Dave Matthews "Crash." 

15. Sorority girls will be kept in Mike Leach's shed.

If sorority girls object to this, they could have gone to Texas and watched Mack Brown lose football games.

These are the rules.

16. All babies born in Lubbock will be delivered wearing sunglasses.

It's not a miracle, it's just Kliff.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders have reportedly hired former Texas A&M offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury to fill their head coaching vacancy, according to the Associated Press (via DallasNews.com).

It’s a great hire on a number of levels, and the Red Raiders are sure to be a competitive football program in the Big 12 with Kingsbury at the helm. They were fortunate to get such a promising young talent to fill the position, especially on such short notice.

If you haven’t heard, former TTU coach Tommy Tuberville reportedly left in the middle of a dinner with potential Red Raiders recruits to accept the Cincinnati job this past weekend. His defection blindsided school officials, who fortunately knew just where to turn.

Keenum's epic season was due in large part to Kingsbury's guidance

Kingsbury played quarterback for the Red Raiders from 1998-2002, piling up huge numbers and garnering big wins before getting into coaching following an unsuccessful pro career in 2008.

The San Antonio native got his first job as an assistant for the Houston Cougars, before moving up to co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2010, helping groom then-QB Case Keenum into an absolute stud under center.

After the 2011 season, Kingsbury jumped ship—along with then-Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin—to the Aggies. The HC/OC duo helped the team to a 10-2 record in its first season of SEC play, and their high-powered attack led to more than 550 yards per game of offense.

It also produced a Heisman-winning QB in freshman Johnny Manziel, the first freshman to ever achieve the honor. Kingsbury was directly involved in the success of Johnny Football, and the young coach’s tutelage will be greatly appreciated at his alma mater.

Johnny Football owes some of his Heisman credit to Kingsbury

While some would argue that the age of the 33-year-old Kingsbury is going to hurt his ability as a head coach, we believe his youth is a major asset to an upstart program like TTU.

He can relate to the players more closely—just a decade removed from his own career at the university—and isn’t afraid to try new things and fail.

His “Air Raid” style offensive attack was never supposed to work in the SEC, but he tried it anyway and found it was possible to win in a defensive conference with it. Now that the system, and the coach, are coming home to Texas Tech, the Red Raiders are sure to be a force in 2013.

Kingsbury played high school football at New Braunfels High School, where his father Tim was head coach. Kingsbury also was a member of the baseball, basketball and track teams.[1] His mother, Sally, died in 2005 at the age of 51 from soft-tissue sarcoma.[2]

[edit] College career

Kingsbury played collegiately for the Texas Tech Red Raiders from 1998-2002 at the position of quarterback. Kingsbury played 43 games at Texas Tech, completing 1,231 of 1,883 passes for 12,429 yards with 95 touchdowns and 40 interceptions. He left Texas Tech as the owner of 39 school records, 13 Big Twelve Conference and seven NCAA Division I-A records and is only the third player in college football history to throw for over 10,000 yards, gain over 10,000 yards in total offense and complete over 1,000 passes in a career. He also became just the fourth player in college football annals to throw for over 3,000 yards three times during his career.[3]

Kingsbury also excelled in the classroom as he was one of 14 collegiate football players to receive a post-graduate scholarship from the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame as he also garnered Verizon Academic Player of the Year honors in 2002. As a senior he was awarded the Sammy Baugh Trophy, annually presented to the nation's best college passer. He was also selected Verizon/CoSIDA Academic All-American and Player of the Year as well as being a unanimous All-Big Twelve Conference first-team pick and named the Associated Press' Offensive Player of the Year. These awards followed a season during which he shattered his own school single-season records by completing 479 of 712 passes (67.3 percent) for 5,017 yards, 45 touchdowns and just 13 interceptions. He also added two rushing scores on 102 carries.[3]

He averaged 350.2 yards per game and his 45 touchdown passes nearly doubled his previous season's mark. As a junior, Kingsbury was a Verizon All-District first-team selection and All-Big Twelve Conference second-team pick by the league's coaches for his performance. He completed 365 of 529 passes for 3,502 yards, 25 touchdowns and only nine interceptions. Kingsbury was an Academic All-Big Twelve Conference choice following his sophomore campaign. He assumed the starting role and connected on 362 of 585 passes for 3,418 yards, 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He added two scores on 78 carries. In his red-shirt freshman year, Kingsbury appeared in six games, starting the season finale against Oklahoma. He completed 25 of 57 passes for 492 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in his initial collegiate season.[3]

He held 39 school, 13 Big 12 and seven NCAA records at the time of his graduation. He was a management major in college.[1] He was also a member of the Epsilon Nu Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity at Texas Tech. He, along with Graham Harrell, are the only Texas Tech quarterbacks to have beaten both Texas and Oklahoma during their careers as starters.

[edit] Professional career [edit] 2003 & 2004 (NFL)

Kingsbury, 6' 3" tall, 213-pounds,[4] was selected by the New England Patriots in the sixth round of the 2003 Draft with the 201st overall selection. He spent his rookie season of 2003 on the Patriots' injured reserve list with an arm injury and was waived by the Pats on September 6, 2004 and subsequently was signed to the New Orleans Saints' practice squad, where he spent the entire 2004 season. He went to training camp with the Saints this season and completed 10-of-21 passes for 139 yards with a long of 57 yards and two interceptions.[3]

The 26-year old native of New Braunfels, TX was signed to the Denver Broncos' practice squad on Sept. 6, 2005 and was released on Sept. 21, 2005. As a free agent he signed with the New York Jets on September 28, 2005.[3]

Kingsbury made his NFL debut in the fourth quarter of a game against the Denver Broncos on November 20, 2005, while a member of the New York Jets.

[edit] 2006 (NFL/NFLE)

The New York Jets assigned Kingsbury to the Cologne Centurions of NFL Europe in 2006. He posted the top quarterback rating of any Cologne quarterback (73.7) while completing 58 of 102 passes for 633 yards and two touchdowns. He also led Cologne with a 56.9 completion percentage. Kingsbury was subsequently signed by the Buffalo Bills and attended training camp with the Bills, but did not see any regular season action with the team in 2006.[1]

[edit] 2007 (CFL)

On March 30, 2007, Kingsbury signed with the Montréal Alouettes. He spent part of training camp in Montréal before being traded to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on June 20 in exchange for quarterback Brad Banks.

[edit] Coaching career [edit] 2008–2012 (Prior to Texas Tech)

In August 2008, Kingsbury joined the University of Houston football staff in the position of quality control.[5] Kingsbury was drawn to Houston through his ties with Dana Holgorsen who had been the offensive coordinator at Texas Tech prior to Houston and was recognized for the performance of the Houston offense in 2009 with record setting quarterback Case Keenum at the helm. With Holgerson departing to become the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State University, Kingsbury was promoted to the position of co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Cougars serving alongside former UH receiver Jason Phillips. Kingsbury quickly gained Coach Kevin Sumlin's trust and began calling all the offensive plays. After a record breaking 2011 season in which Houston led the NCAA in yards, points, and virtually every offensive category, Kingsbury followed Sumlin to Texas A&M. In College Station Kingsbury continued his accelerated climb through the coaching ranks as the Aggies offensive coordinator for the 2012 season. At Texas A&M Kingsbury will implement the "Air Raid" spread offense, he first learned at Texas Tech and the variation Holgerson adapted at Houston.[6] Kliff Kingsbury was recognized as the 2011 Offensive Coordinator of the year after Houston lead college football, averaging 50 points and nearly 600 yards of offense per game.[7]

Kliff Kingsbury joined former Houston head coach Kevin Sumlin to be the offensive coordinator for Texas A&M for the 2012 season, coaching Heisman Trophy winner, quarterback Johnny Manziel.[8] For his performance, Kingsbury was named the 2012 Footballscoop.com Offensive Coordinator of the Year and was named a finalist for the Broyles Award.[9] The Aggies lead the Southeastern Conference in in rushing, passing, total and scoring offense, and were the nation’s only offense ranked in the top 15 of the NCAA statistics in all four categories.[10]

[edit] 2013 (Texas Tech Red Raiders)

Kingsbury returned to his alma mater as Texas Tech's 15th full-time head coach on December 12, 2012.Texas Tech athletic director, Kirby Hocutt announced the hire with a video linked from his Twitter account. The video panned over to Kingsbury, who flashed the Guns Up sign and said, "Wreck 'em, Tech."[11]

At 33, Kingsbury is the youngest head coach of a team in an AQ conference, and the second-youngest head coach in college football. He is only second behind only Matt Campbell of Toledo.[12]
