Former Texas Tech coach Pat Knight interviewed at Lamar on Monday and will be named the Cardinals' next head coach, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Tuesday.
An offical announcement is expected in the next 24 hours.
Knight coached Texas Tech for parts of four seasons after taking over for his father, Bob Knight, in February 2008. The 40 year old was fired last month after leading the Red Raiders to a ninth-or-worse finish in the Big 12 for the third straight year. He's replacing Steve Roccaforte at Lamar.
