LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech didn't take long or go far to find its new basketball coach. The Red Raiders introduced Texas Tech graduate and West Texas native Mark Adams as their new coach. The introduction came before a live audience Tuesday night at the team's home basketball arena. Adams was an assistant coach the past five seasons for Chris Beard. Adams says being the head coach at his alma mater is his dream job. Beard left Tech last week to become the new coach at his alma mater, Big 12 rival Texas.
