Texas Tech must have some kind of vendetta against TCU right now. Yesterday the school added to TCU's scheduling woes for 2011 by dropping the Horned Frogs from its schedule, and now the Red Raiders have raided TCU's coaching staff to find a new defensive coordinator. Texas Tech announced on Friday that it had hired TCU defensive backs coach Chad Glasgow.
"It's my goal to bring our defense to a championship level and Chad Glasgow is the right person for the job," said Tech coach Tommy Tuberville. "With his experience and knowledge of the game and recruiting, he will be a great addition to our staff."
Glasgow, 38, has been on the TCU staff for the last ten years, and is considered one of the best young coaches in the country. So this is a pretty big hire for Tuberville and Texas Tech. He isn't the only hire the school made on Friday, either, as it was also announced that graduate assistant Otis Mounds had been promoted to cornerbacks coach.
"I've known Otis for over 10 years," remarked Tuberville. "He is one of the new up-and-coming bright coaches in this business who has had experience at both the high school and college level. He was a big part of our staff last year and I am glad that we were able to keep him on board."
Mounds played his college ball at Auburn, and is also the uncle of four-star recruit Marcus Roberson, who gave his verbal commitment to Texas Tech earlier this week. Amazing how that happens.
