Chris Beard

Texas Tech Basketball Coach Chris Beard has been hired for the same position at the University of Texas, according to multiple reports. 

Beard has spent the last five seasons at the helm of the Red Raiders where he compiled a 112-55 record. 

Beard has been making nearly $5 Million per season at Texas Tech, but the significant number for Texas: $4 Million. Beard's buyout dropped to $4 Million on Thursday for a intra-conference opponent to hire him away from Lubbock. 

The Red Raider head man led Tech to it's best two NCAA Tournament finishes in program history. The Red Raiders reached the Elite Eight in 2018 and played in the National Championship game in 2019.
